Favourite composers

Inspired by the 30-Day Opera Challenge done by Austin Lyric Opera, the staff at the Edmonton Opera have taken on their own 30-day challenge. Each week, we'll post answers from staff members about various aspects of opera, whether it's their favourite aria, an opera house they'd like to visit or their opinion on a genre. We welcome comments about your own take on the question, either on the blog or via social media.

Who is your favourite composer?

Jelena Bojic, director of community relations: Philip Glass — I love his music and could listen to it over and over again.

Jessica McMillan, administrative assistant: Shostakovich is my favourite.

Rebecca Anderson, box office supervisor: Rachmaninoff and Henryk Gorecki are some of my favourites. Both are so passionate! I also love Yann Tiersen, Nick Cave and Warren Ellis - all excellent composers of music in film, in addition to performin in crossover alternative music groups.

Jeff McAlpine, assistant technical director: Beethoven.

Sandra Gajic, CEO: For me, it's Wagner — need I say more?
