The Big COC Podcast – Episode 12 – It ain't so bad... is it?


For Episode 12, the “It ain’t so bad…is it?” edition, we welcome back opera journalist Joseph So; blogger John Gilks as well as Alia Rosenstock, Associate Artist Manager with Dean Artists Management. Gianmarco Segato, the COC’s Adult Programs Manager is your host. Here are just some of the exciting stories we covered this week:

  • The opera industry’s latest foray into statuette territory: the newly-minted Opera Awards as well as the slightly longer-established Opera News Awards
  • Confused about cross-over? So are we…but we make a brave stab at sorting out what is opera…and what is not!
  • Toronto’s Diamond Schmitt Architects is back with a new opera house – this time in St. Petersburg
  • What’s up with the art song recital – thriving or in need of reviving?
  • Corporate take-over! EMI gobbled by Warner!
