LA TRAVIATA, ONE OF OPERA’S GREATEST ROMANCES, OPENS CANADIAN OPERA COMPANY SEASON

Read the PDF version.

Toronto – The Canadian Opera Company opens its 2015/2016 season with a work of dazzling beauty, Giuseppe Verdi’s La Traviata. This operatic classic returns to the COC stage in a lush new production for 11 performances at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts on October 8, 13, 16, 17, 21, 24, 29, 30, November 1, 4, 6, 2015.

La Traviata is one of opera’s greatest romances but it scandalized Venetians at its 1853 premiere with its unsentimental depiction of a Parisian courtesan in love. A year later, La Traviata was restaged and triumphed, quickly growing in popularity. It remains one of the most performed operas in the world.

Renowned New York theatre director Arin Arbus, hailed by the New York Times in 2009 as “the most gifted new director to emerge,” sets Verdi’s story of passion and sacrifice in glittering 1850s Paris, evoking the social realities, rhythms and debauchery of a rapidly changing world. Co-produced with Lyric Opera of Chicago and Houston Grand Opera, this La Traviata delighted audiences at its Chicago premiere in 2013 with a look and feel that is “both hyper-traditional and, in moments, saucily modern” (bachtrack.com).

Arbus’s creation balances the intimacy of Verdi’s delicate love story with the playfulness and decadence of the 19th-century Parisian nightlife that inspired the opera that Verdi called “a subject of the times.” The lavish costumes are by noted visual artist and designer Cait O’Connor, set against the uncluttered backdrop of set designer Riccardo Hernandez with atmospheric lighting by Marcus Doshi and choreography by Austin McCormick. Projection designs are by Christopher Ash.

Irresistible melodies and elegant harmonies make the score of La Traviata one of Verdi’s most emotional operas. Leading the COC Orchestra and Chorus through this musical masterpiece is internationally renowned Italian conductor Marco Guidarini, last with the COC for 2012’s Il Trovatore.

La Traviata’s doomed courtesan, Violetta, has emerged over time as one of the most compelling and glamorous heroines in all of opera. Russian Ekaterina Siurina, one of the leading singers of her generation and as celebrated for her sparkling soprano as her charming stage presence, makes her Canadian and role debut in a part known for its demanding vocal pyrotechnics and complex character arc. She shares this beloved role with equally lauded Canadian soprano Joyce El-Khoury, one of today’s leading Violettas, last heard at the COC in La Bohème in 2013.

In the role of Violetta’s nobleman lover, Alfredo, is one of the finest lyric tenors of his generation, internationally acclaimed American Charles Castronovo in his Canadian debut. He shares the role with “the powerful and nimble voice” (Opera News) of COC Ensemble Studio tenor Andrew Haji. As Germont, Alfredo’s disapproving father, is “incomparable” American baritone Quinn Kelsey, as proclaimed by The Guardian. Kelsey mesmerized COC audiences and critics in 2014’s Don Quichotte and 2011’s Rigoletto, and now brings his “strong, musical voice… [to make] a formidable Germont” (New York Times). Canadian baritone James Westman, last with the COC in 2012’s Die Fledermaus, brings his “dramatic range and superb vocal control... [and] keen sense of theatric expression” (Opera News) to the role of Germont for three performances. Westman also sings Baron Douphol, Alfredo’s rival, for the other eight shows in La Traviata’s scheduled run.

South African-Canadian mezzo-soprano and Ensemble Studio alumna Lauren Segal, “alluring, sexy, her voice rich in nuance” (Opera Magazine), returns to the COC as Violetta’s friend, Flora. Canadian bass-baritone Thomas Goerz sings Baron Douphol for three performances and Ensemble Studio alumni bass Robert Gleadow and bass-baritone Neil Craighead share the role of Dr. Grenvil. Rounding out the cast are current members of the company’s Ensemble Studio: bass-baritone Iain MacNeil is the Marquis d’Obigny; tenor Charles Sy is Alfredo’s friend, Gastone; soprano Karine Boucher is Violetta’s maid, Annina; and tenor Jean-Philippe Fortier-Lazure is Violetta’s servant, Giuseppe. Baritone Jan Vaculik is a Messenger.

La Traviata is based on the French play La dame aux Camélias (1852) by Alexandre Dumas fils, which the author adapted for the stage from his own best-selling novel of the same name. Dumas had fallen in love with a famous Parisian courtesan named Marie Duplessis, who served as the model for the tragic heroine of Dumas’ novel and subsequently Verdi’s opera.

Dumas’ play attracted Verdi’s attention because it offered a new and invigorating Realism. In this story, morality did not necessarily triumph; the scale was intimate and personal by focusing on people’s private lives; and the characters and situations were recognizably contemporary, speaking to all manner of issues that were relevant to, and vigorously debated by, the public in mid-1800s Europe. Verdi originally set his opera in contemporary times, something rarely done, but he ran afoul of censors and theatre managers who demanded that the time period of La Traviata be pushed into the distant past to dilute the work’s shocking social critique.

La Traviata is sung in Italian with English SURTITLESTM, and was last performed by the COC in 2007.

COC PRESENTS WORLD PREMIERE OF PYRAMUS AND THISBE ALONGSIDE RARELY PERFORMED BAROQUE OPERA CLASSICS

Read the PDF version.

Toronto – The world premiere of a new Canadian opera awaits Canadian Opera Company audiences this fall at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts. In a new company production, the COC proudly presents Barbara Monk Feldman’s first opera, Pyramus and Thisbe (2010), performed with two early Baroque opera classics, Claudio Monteverdi’s Lamento d’Arianna (1608) and Il combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda (1624). Pyramus and Thisbe runs for seven performances on October 20, 23, 25, 28, November 5, 7 (two performances), 2015.

The COC’s production brings together operas composed 400 years apart, while illustrating the beauty of the human voice and the magic of musical storytelling over the passage of time. “What we’re offering our audience is an opportunity to explore the evolution of opera, from its earliest beginnings with the Monteverdi pieces, which the COC has never performed before, to the sounds of the art form in the 21st century,” says COC General Director Alexander Neef. “We’re very proud that the COC is the first to perform Barbara’s opera. In Pyramus and Thisbe, I think people will feel similarities to operas that have come before, in terms of the mythology of the story and the musical vocabulary, but at the same time recognize the delicacy of what Barbara has created and its utter originality.”

“Although there are other aspects to consider, I am inspired by natural landscape so it makes sense that the music should be premiered in my native country. In nature the quality of the light is always subtly varying, and as a painter friend of mine said, she tries to capture the feeling that something is about to change, and this feeling is what I aim for in the music of Pyramus and Thisbe,” says Barbara Monk Feldman. “I wanted the music to constantly reach out like a line and intertwine with the interior landscape of each of the characters’ unconscious.”

Barbara Monk Feldman’s Pyramus and Thisbe is based on the classic myth of Ovid’s ill-fated lovers Pyramus and Thisbe, who communicate through a crack in the wall that separates them, only for a tragic misunderstanding to occur when they attempt to secretly meet. Monteverdi’s two works were composed just as opera was emerging as an art form and, as with most early operas, their subjects are drawn from mythology and history. Lamento d’Arianna tells the tale of Ariadne abandoned by Theseus on the island of Naxos, while Il combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda is the story of the Christian knight Tancredi and the Saracen warrior-maiden Clorinda, and how their tragic fates are determined on the battlefields of the Crusades.

COC Music Director Johannes Debus leads the COC Orchestra and Chorus through this bold program of music. His musical direction is matched theatrically by internationally acclaimed American director Christopher Alden, whose commitment to keeping opera challenging and vital has previously brought to the COC productions of La clemenza di Tito (2013), Die Fledermaus (2012), Rigoletto (2011), and The Flying Dutchman (1996, 2000, 2010). Alden weaves the Monteverdi and Monk Feldman operas together with Dora Award-winning set designer Paul Steinberg (2014’s Falstaff) and acclaimed costume designer Terese Wadden (2013’s La clemenza di Tito, 2012’s A Florentine Tragedy/Gianni Schicchi), the trio conceiving a production aesthetic inspired by the complex veils of colour seen in abstract American painter Mark Rothko. Lighting design and choreography are by COC newcomers, JAX Messenger and Tim Claydon, respectively.

Leading a compelling team of singer-actors assembled for this production is an artist of great vocal versatility and stage prowess: Krisztina Szabó. The Canadian mezzo-soprano and COC Ensemble Studio alumna is universally hailed for her supreme musicianship and stagecraft, with critics praising “her rich, dark timbre and fullness of sound” (Chicago Tribune) and how she sings “with passion, beauty and power” (Opera News) and “full of the spirit of daring” (Globe and Mail). Szabó follows up her virtuoso and 2015 Dora Award-nominated performance as the Woman in the COC’s Erwartung by starring as Thisbe in Pyramus and Thisbe, as well as Arianna and Clorinda in the two Monteverdi operas.

Canadian baritone Phillip Addis delighted COC audiences with his double-cast turn as Marcello and Schaunard in 2013’s La Bohème. “A star in the making” (Music OMH), Addis is praised for his creamy, bright, smooth voice as much as for his spell-binding, daring, yet sensitive interpretations. He returns to the COC as Szabó’s love interests: Tancredi in Il combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda and Pyramus in Pyramus and Thisbe.

Since taking on the title role in the COC’s La clemenza di Tito in 2012, Ensemble Studio alumnus tenor Owen McCausland has continuingly impressed audiences and critics alike with his voice of “real gold” (National Post). He joins Szabó and Addis as Testo, the narrator, in Il combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda.

Canadian composer Barbara Monk Feldman is known mostly for her chamber and piano works that have been performed in Asia, Europe and North America. Pyramus and Thisbe is her only opera. The libretto features excerpts from Ovid’s Metamorphoses, William Faulkner’s The Long Summer, St. John of the Cross’s Dark Night of the Soul, Rainer Maria Rilke’s Die Sonette an Orpheus and Karl Jasper’s Man in the Modern Age. Pyramus and Thisbe is sung primarily in English with sections in German and Latin, all with SURTITLESTM.

Claudio Monteverdi is a crucial figure in the history of music, with his work bringing to opera a new era of expressiveness and dramatic possibilities. Lamento d’Arianna is nine minutes long and all that remains of Monteverdi’s second opera, L’Arianna. Rarely performed, it is one of the finest examples of the melodic use of a solo voice with orchestral accompaniment with the power to move an audience to tears. Il combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda is the composer’s extraordinary dramatic madrigal in which the orchestra and voices are two separate identities resulting in some of opera’s most beautiful soaring melodies. The Monteverdi operas will be sung in Italian with SURTITLESTM.

TICKET INFORMATION
Single tickets for Pyramus and Thisbe with Lamento d’Arianna and Il combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda range from $50 – $435 and are available online at coc.ca, by calling 416-363-8231, or in person at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts Box Office (145 Queen St. W.).

WORLD CLASS TALENT AND ARTISTIC DIVERSITY ABOUND IN 2015/2016 SEASON OF COC’S FREE CONCERT SERIES

Read the PDF version.

Toronto – When the Canadian Opera Company’s Free Concert Series in the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre returns for its 2015/2016 season this fall, over 400 artists from diverse artistic backgrounds will share their talents in one of Toronto’s most vibrant and intimate cultural hubs. The season begins on Tuesday, September 22 with a highly anticipated performance by the rising stars of the COC Ensemble Studio singing their favourite arias and art songs.

This season’s over 70 concerts span a broad spectrum of art forms across six series: Vocal, Chamber Music, Piano Virtuoso, Jazz, World Music and Dance. From opera, art song and intimate chamber pieces to swinging big bands and cross-cultural fusions, the talents of both internationally acclaimed artists and the stars of tomorrow will be on display.

“What we present in the Free Concert Series reflects both this city’s amazing cultural and artistic diversity, as well as what you see in the COC’s productions on the mainstage: a commitment to compelling performances and artistic excellence,” says Claire Morley, the COC’s new program manager for the Free Concert Series. “We want audiences to rediscover music they may have loved for years through intimate recitals, but the Free Concert Series is also the perfect place to try something new, like modern jazz fused with traditional Indian ragas or an innovative contemporary dance performance. All of these artists have a story to tell.”

Morley brings a wealth of experience to the role of program manager, having previously worked in the communications departments of the COC and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, as well as the SweetWater Music Festival in Owen Sound. An accomplished soprano, she is also a member of the acclaimed Elmer Iseler Singers.

Among this season’s highlights are two world premieres, for chamber orchestra and piano: The Glenn Gould School’s New Music Ensemble, under the direction of Brian Current, premieres Strange Luminescence by Chinese-Canadian composer Alice Ho; and rising star American pianist Kara Huber presents Pulitzer Prize-nominated composer David Rakowski’s Préludes for Piano, Book IX. Huber’s program also includes the Canadian premiere of Bagatelles by Douglas Pew.

Several notable artists and ensembles perform in the Free Concert Series for the first time this season, including: internationally acclaimed opera stars, Georgian mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili, American baritone Quinn Kelsey, British baritone Christopher Purves, Austrian bass-baritone Josef Wagner and French mezzo-soprano Clémentine Margaine; Canadian jazz legend Brian Barlow’s inimitable Big Band; Autorickshaw, a cutting-edge group that blends popular and classical Indian music with contemporary jazz, funk and folk; powerhouse blues duo Diana Braithwaite and Chris Whiteley; and the exuberant young artists of the Jazz.FM91 Youth Big Band.

Additional 15/16 highlights include several holiday-themed concerts suitable for all ages. Concerts filled with holiday classics from a capella vocal quartet Cadence and blues duo Braithwaite and Whiteley, as well as the Brian Barlow Big Band’s rendition of Duke Ellington’s jazzy interpretation of The Nutcracker Suite, are sure to put audience members in the Christmas spirit. In March, the COC’s popular interactive March Break concert gives the audience a chance to stretch their operatic vocal cords; while the Danforth Four’s traditional Irish program is an ideal lead-up to St. Patrick’s Day.

The Free Concert Series brings diverse artistic experiences to approximately 15,000 people annually from September to May in the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts. Performances take place most Tuesdays and Thursdays at 12 p.m., and some Wednesdays at 12 p.m. or 5:30 p.m. Doors open 30 minutes prior to each performance and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Free Concert Series presents artists of the highest calibre in six series running throughout the season:

VOCAL
The Vocal Series celebrates the glory of the human voice in 20 concerts. Audience members will have the unique opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the COC’s mainstage stars when they sing their favourite arias and art songs in the intimate environment of the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre. Artists include both Carmens from the COC’s spring production, mezzo-sopranos Anita Rachvelishvili and Clémentine Margaine; American baritone Quinn Kelsey (Germont in La Traviata); British baritone Christopher Purves (Alberich in Siegfried); Austrian bass-baritone Josef Wagner (Figaro in The Marriage of Figaro); American tenor Russell Thomas (Don José in Carmen); Canadian soprano Simone Osborne (Micaëla in Carmen); and Canadian baritone/guitarist Doug MacNaughton (Antonio in The Marriage of Figaro).

Additional vocal highlights include internationally acclaimed Canadian bass Robert Pomakov with the renowned Gryphon Trio, as well the return of the Canadian Art Song Project with a new song cycle by Erik Ross, performed by soprano and COC Ensemble Studio graduate Ambur Braid. Arraymusic celebrates women composers and the female voice with a program featuring compositions by two acclaimed female composers: Canadian Barbara Monk Feldman (whose opera Pyramus and Thisbe receives its world premiere on the COC mainstage this fall) and American Anita Rachvelishvili.

Opera’s future stars also shine in several concerts featuring artists of the COC Ensemble Studio, including a performance by the company’s very own “Four Tenors:” Jean-Philippe Fortier-Lazure, Andrew Haji, Aaron Sheppard and Charles Sy.

CHAMBER MUSIC
The great masterpieces, alongside cutting-edge contemporary works, are showcased in the Chamber Music Series’ 17 concerts this season. Highlights include the return of Trio Arkel, led by COC Concertmaster Marie Bérard; The National Ballet of Canada Brass Quintet; members of Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra; Toronto Symphony Orchestra principal cellist Joseph Johnson; and the Afiara Quartet with guitarist Graham Campbell.

The 15/16 chamber music season also features five concerts by artists of the renowned COC Orchestra, including a special performance introducing the young musicians of the COC Orchestra Academy. Emerging talent is also highlighted in concerts by ensembles from The Glenn Gould School, including the GGS New Music Ensemble.

PIANO VIRTUOSO
Pianists from Canada and around the world explore a richly varied repertoire in the Piano Virtuoso Series’ 10 concerts. Contemporary music dominates in concerts from American pianist Kara Huber, whose program features both a world and Canadian premiere, and Canadian pianist/composer John Kameel Farah, who uses piano, synthesizer and computer to combine elements of early music, contemporary classical, Arabic music and forms of electronic dance music in his works. Classical masterworks are highlighted in performances by Canadian Linda Ippolito, as well as rising young stars such as Erik Lawrence, Tussah Heera, Charissa Vandikas, Charles Richard-Hamelin, Alexander Seredenko and Rossina Grieco.

Returning to the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre is singer/pianist Elizabeth Shepherd, hailed as one of the jazz world’s most alluring and imaginative artists, as well as one of Canada’s most inventive young trios, Myriad3. Ensembles from Humber College and McGill University’s Schulich School of Music showcase the next generation of jazz talent.

WORLD MUSIC
The World Music Series’ six performances celebrate the rich musical traditions of cultures around the world. Explore the rhythms of the Caribbean through contemporary jazz sextet Kalabash’s blend of Reggae, Son, Salsa, Calypso, Soca, Rapso and Zouk. Audiences can also take a musical journey to Ireland with the Danforth Four’s toe-tapping traditional tunes, or to India with Monsoon’s fresh and innovative approach to Indo-Jazz fusion.

DANCE
The seven performances in the Dance Series showcase some of the city’s most inventive dancers and choreographers, drawing from a variety of cultural and dance traditions. Highlights include a preview of artistic producer Danielle Baskerville and choreographer D.A. Hoskins’ new work that draws on the loss of the late Canadian actress Jackie Burroughs, as well as a sneak peek of Canada’s Ballet Jörgen’s new production of Sleeping Beauty. Iconic Canadian choreographer Peggy Baker makes a much-anticipated return to the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre with her company.
