Vancouver Opera 2012/13 season

Hey all, I’m still out here, doing fine. I have to admit that I have been working on a couple other projects over the last little while and have been neglecting this poor little blog for the last while. My apologies. So now it is back to work here…with a look at the Vancouver Opera 2012/13 season.

Although I did not make it to a single performance of the Vancouver Opera this season, it is still very much one of my passions. I am hoping (planning?) on attending the 2012/13 season and was more than a little pleased to see the release for the 2012/2013 opera season:

La Bohème – One of the world’s greatest love stories. Puccini’s ever popular masterpiece features a stellar youthful cast in a gorgeous production.

The Pirates of Penzance – Vancouver favourites Christopher Gaze and Judith Forst star in this witty comic opera that will have you laughing out loud!

Yes, I am VERY much looking forward to seeing Christopher Gaze! in a Vancouver Opera performance! (That’s me, Stacey speaking here).

The Magic Flute – VO presents its acclaimed First Nations – inspired production of Mozart’s magical tale, enhanced with new design elements.

Tea: A Mirror of Soul – A Canadian premiere, by the Academy Award winning composer of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Tan Dun’s haunting score and visually stunning staging will be one of the highlights of the cultural season.
