Amplified Opera Named Disruptor-In-Residence at the Canadian Opera CompanyBy COC NewsPosted in Disruptor in Residence
The Canadian Opera Company welcomes Toronto-based Amplified Opera to the COC Academy as part of the company’s newly developed Disruptor-in-Residence program. The two-year residency will offer resources and support to the emerging opera company during the critical transition period from start-up to established organization, as well as share valuable learnings about digital content creation in the current cultural climate. The artistic collaboration aims to support increased equity, diversity, and inclusivity within the arts through workshops and training for fellow artists and activities that foster greater community engagement.
Alexander's Playlist: Queen's A Night at the OperaBy Alexander NeefPosted in Alexander Neef Playlist
If you’ve listened to the latest episode of Key Change: A COC Podcast, you already know that Perryn Leech and I both admire the genius of Freddie Mercury and one album in particular holds a special place in my heart.

Two new Canadian operas see their premieres this month — and they were composed by some of the art form’s youngest creators! For several weeks this fall, participants from the Canadian Opera Company’s virtual Opera Makers programs, in partnership with Sistema Toronto and West Neighbourhood House, have been busy composing, designing and rehearsing their own original operas from scratch.
