As part of Culture Days, a three-day, cross-Canada event aimed at encouraging participation in the arts, the Canadian Opera Company offers an exclusive opportunity to attend a portion of a rehearsal of the COC’s new production of Johann Strauss II’s madcap comedy Die Fledermaus at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts. Before the rehearsal, get the inside scoop at an exclusive pre-performance interview hosted by Brent Bambury who will be chatting with costume designer, Constance Hoffman and set designer Allen Moyer.
The rehearsal process is rarely open to the general public but on Friday, September 28, 2012, 500 people can catch a first glimpse of this effervescent operetta of mistaken identity and seduction set in elegant, early 20th-century Vienna. A pre-rehearsal chat in the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre in the Four Seasons Centre, gives audience members insight into the popular work, as well as into the process of bringing an operatic production to the stage.
Admission is limited to 500 patrons.
Tickets to the event are FREE and will be distributed at the door starting at 6 p.m. on a first-come, first-served basis with an allowance of one ticket per person.
Tickets are not available in advance.
For more information, call COC Ticket Services at 416-363-8231.
