The Big COC Podcast - Episode Nine - Definitely not Moribund

For Episode 9, the “Definitely Not Moribund” edition, we welcome back opera blogger and journalist John Gilks, as well as opera journalist Joseph So. Joining us for the first time is arts journalist Paula Citron. Gianmarco Segato, the COC’s Adult Programs Manager, is your host.

A recent article in the Globe and Mail about the phenomenon known as the “Compulsory Canadian Standing O” spurs on a lively chat (at 1:50). We also examine audience reactions to women singing male roles (a.k.a. “pants roles”) in the COC’s recent La clemenza di Tito (at 14:40).

We finish with our monthly list of favourite livestreams; short, comic, contemporary opera clips, and newly-released DVDs (at 29:30).
