Opera by Request
A love triangle between the French actress Adriana Lecouvreur, the Princess de Bouillon and Maurizio, the Count of Saxony. This opera contains everything you might desire from a plot, including the real-life romance between Adriana (soprano Kathleen Morrison) and Maurizio (tenor Ernesto Ramirez), her rivalry with Princess de Bouillon (mezzo-soprano Barbara King), and her unexpected and mysterious death. Love, infidelity, murder, and glorious music...it doesn't get more "opera-plot" than that!
A dynamic cast from Calgary and Toronto joins forces with Calgary Concert Opera and Opera by Request.
Kathleen will be singing the lead role of Adriana Lecouvreur in all 3 performances.
Chiaroscuro: a liederabend reimagined
Saturday, October 28th, 2023
VIP Presale until August 31st
Public Tickets September 1st
A stunning new presentation of traditional art song gems alongside breathtaking lighting and shadow.
Chiaroscuro, an exploration of the balance of light and shadow, is a term used interchangeably in both the visual art world and in music, particularly Italian opera. Traverse the juxtaposition of light/dark, day/night, heaven/hell and love/despair.
Set in the beautiful Polaris Theatre, this concert will explore light and shadow in its varied forms, including lighting, architecture, textiles, and the true aural showcase of the event - the myriad of tonal colours of the human voice.
No stranger to both contemporary and traditional music scenes, both Kathleen and Carlos are recognized for their innovative programming, a unique conversational style which builds a deep rapport with audiences, and a strong desire to delve ever deeper into their artistic subject matter.
Running time: 65 minutes with no intermission
