Welcome to Inside Opera

It's the start of a new season at the Canadian Opera Company. The fall season features our star-studded production of Il Trovatore and the debut of our brand new production of Die Fledermaus.

To highlight the tremendous efforts that go into the creation of a new production, we've launched a brand new video series, Inside Opera. The series will look at the work that goes on behind-the-scenes in the costume, set and props department that gives opera its opulent look.

Our first video focuses on set construction for Die Fledermaus, specifically the showpiece for Act II: an impossibly tall, custom-built, moving staircase! The video also features interviews with our production staff who have been busy crafting all the elaborate details required of such a visually demanding opera.

Be on the lookout for our next video, as we prowl through the costume department and get a sneak peek at the fashionable frocks and gowns from Die Fledermaus.
