Understanding the context of the opera and listening to directors, conductors, artists and staff members at Edmonton Opera talk about their work and productions is even easier, with Edmonton Opera’s new app for iPhone and Android users.
Recent Onegin videos, found in the app, include chorusmaster and artistic administrator Michael Spassov, director Tom Diamond and conductor James Meena, each talking about a different aspect of the opera. The app is available for Apple products (including iPhones, iPads and iTouch) and Android, as well as a mobile website for BlackBerry users.
Mainstage productions, anniversary projects announced for Edmonton Opera’s 50th season
Next season, Edmonton Opera’s presence will be felt equally on and off the stage.
The opera company announced its 50th anniversary season on Jan. 23, which includes productions of
Richard Strauss’ Salome, Johann Strauss’ Die Fledermaus and Giacomo Puccini’s Madama Butterfly.
In addition, anniversary-specific projects have been announced for 2013/14: an Edmonton Opera chorus
concert in October 2013, a Canadian new work competition known as Opera Next and an education
partnership called DIY Opera.
