It's almost the holidays! Are you still stumped for a gift for that opera afficionado in your life? Or maybe a gift for yourself? We have a few suggestions...
1. Give the gift of opera!
Our winter operas offer a great contrast in content and musical styles. Così fan tutte is a charming Mozart rom-com about young love and temptation, and A Masked Ball offers a Verdi tale about forbidden passion, unrequited love and political intrigue. But whatever your heart desires, you can purchase tickets online or let your loved one choose their own night with a gift certificate.

This holiday season, many COC artists are getting into the spirit, using their vocal talents to share some truly great seasonal music.
Starting off the list are three singers with a long COC association! Ensemble Studio Alumnae Joni Henson and Virginia Hatfield together with their friend Megan Latham have just released a refreshingly different CD of holiday music, “Christmas at Casa Diva,” which can be purchased here.
While not exactly holiday music, tenor Richard Margison (Salome, 2013) sings the great songs of Italy with the Ontario Philharmonic at Koerner Hall on December 10.
