Thank you to everyone who joined us for Opera al Fresco 2014! The new mini-opera, composed by Samantha Semler (libretto by Mark Morris), for the EO Children's Chorus, was performed for the first time. The reaction from the audience to The Carpenter and the Oniroku was fantastic to observe, and it was a great way to start the evening's festivities. Audiences were also able to enjoy performances by members of the Edmonton Opera chorus, Victoria Trevoy Biel and Renée Brad (accompanied by Leanne Regehr) and the Parry family (accompanied by Gordon Ritchie). It also seems that Mother Nature is an opera fan — we were lucky to have favourable weather and a gorgeous sunset at the end of the night!
