New Principal Cast Announced for MACBETH and TOSCA
By COC Staff
The Canadian Opera Company welcomes four new cast members for its spring season, stepping in for sopranos Sondra Radvanovsky and Olga Busuioc who must regrettably withdraw for personal and health reasons, respectively. Bulgarian soprano Alexandrina Pendatchanska and Ukrainian soprano Liudmyla Monastyrska will now share the role of Lady Macbeth in the COC’s production of the classic Verdi opera. In addition, Irish soprano Sinéad Campbell-Wallace and American soprano Keri Alkema will share the title role in Puccini’s Tosca.
The perfect finale for our first full season in three years, Giacomo Puccini’s Toscais a can’t-miss classic. At once a daring political thriller and a tragic romance for the ages, our production promises a breathtaking night at the opera.
