It is such a privilege to work at Tapestry Opera and take on the challenge of exploring what opera can mean to the 21st century. For most of my life, opera was a rare, old, and untouchable art form, filled with mystery and virtuosity. You did not need to understand it to appreciate it, and it would improve with time. No more!
For us at Tapestry, opera is an opportunity to explore music and stories for today, striking at the heart of the here and now. This weird and wonderful art form is unique in how it can sing to the heart of the human experience in innumerable and exciting ways relevant to our contemporary world, and that is what we are keen to cultivate.
This season we will create, refine, explore, and transgress as we help evolve the form, here in Toronto.
Join us for the show and be surprised at what opera is up to!
