The Brothers Grimm at Calgary Opera

The Brothers Grimm is currently on tour with a wonderful new productions created by Calgary Opera. The production was directed by Rob Herriot with musical direction by Mel Kirby. Artists of Calgary Opera's Emerging Artists Program will be travelling around Southern Alberta until April 6, 2007.
I traveled to Calgary for the premiere on March 19th and was made to feel most welcome. The prime rib and service at the Calgary Tower restaurant were wonderful.

Isis at the Four Seasons

Last June was the grand opening if The Four Season Centre for the Performing Arts, the new home of the Canadian Opera Company ( It is Canada's first purpose-built opera house and as far as the acoustics and sightlines go, it is one of the best theatres in the world.

My opera Isis and the Seven Scorpions was performed as part of the Gala Celebrations during the public open house on the last weekend in June. It was a thrill to see so many people exposed to opera in Toronto.
