This fall, the Canadian Opera Company is putting a chill in the air with two very different, dark fairy tales.
Rusalka Oct 12 To Oct 26, 2019
The mermaid Rusalka leaves behind her watery home to be with her prince charming. Will he stay true to her sacrifice? Based on The Little Mermaid’s original tale, this romantic opera stars Met sensation Sondra Radvanovsky.Gorgeous sets, costumes, and choreography make this production a fairytale spectacle reminiscent of ballets Ondine and Giselle and films like The Shape of Water.
Turandot Sept 28 – Oct. 27
Princess Turandot knows that marriage can be a dangerous commitment. That’s why all her suitors must answer three riddles – and if they get even one wrong, they face the executioner’s blade. Despite the mortal risk, the exiled prince Calaf is determined to try and win her heart.
