Events Description

Canada’s only summer opera festival. A collection of Mainstage Operas, Music Theatre and Enlightenment Events that breathe life into some of the greatest compositions of the vocal arts.

Enjoy a concert version of Porter’s Kiss Me, Kate; a workshop performance of a brand new Canadian opera commissioned by McGill, Much Ado!; and one of Britten’s most well-known operas, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, an early music rendition of Dream (a masque which explores the thematic threads of the play ) created by Purcell, entitled The Fairy Queen. Finally we will end the festival breathing life into the Tony Award winning musical and well-loved literary classic, The Secret Garden.
