COC production delivers dream cast for tale of conflict between love and duty
Toronto – The work of George Frideric Handel, a supreme artist of the Baroque era, returns to the Canadian Opera Company stage this fall in the long awaited company premiere of Ariodante. This new COC co-production is staged by celebrated theatre and opera director Richard Jones with a cast led by two opera stars: British mezzo-soprano Alice Coote and Canadian soprano Jane Archibald. COC Music Director Johannes Debus conducts the piece heralded as Baroque opera at its best. Ariodante runs for seven performances on October 16, 19, 22, 25, 27, 29 and November 4, 2016.

One of the finest dramatic tenors in the world, Heppner returns on November 3, 2016 to host Centre Stage
for the second time since the gala launched in 2013. The grand event is
the COC’s premier fundraiser and an inspiring night to discover and
celebrate the next generation of Canadian opera stars.
