The Canadian Opera Company - The Magic Flute (Mozart)

The depth of Mozart’s genius is evidenced by his last opera, The Magic Flute. A child-like fantasy is paired with the master’s most stunningly beautiful music. From the spectacular fireworks of the Queen of the Night, to Pamina’s anguished lament, and Papageno and Papagena’s comic antics, Mozart’s profound understanding of the human condition is given voice.  Three soloists from the CCOC will perform as the three spirits.

The Canadian Opera Company - Tosca (Puccini)
Set in Rome amid the turbulence of the Napoleonic Wars, Tosca is a tense psychological drama of passion and betrayal.

But Scarpia’s schemes outlive him with cruel and fatal consequences.  20 members of the Principal Chorus perform as the children's chorus, with two soloists also performing the solo offstage role of the Shepherd.
