17/18 Season

Edmonton Opera's 2017/18 season celebrates love, passion, and the incredible power of the human spirit. We invite you to escape with us on an exciting operatic journey with our two remaining productions this season — HMS Pinafore and Don Giovanni. Enjoy both with an Opera Duo from $72!

Sail the high seas with the quirky crew of Gilbert and Sullivan’s HMS Pinafore! This comic operetta is a worldwide favourite, adding a nautical spin to the classic ‘boy meets girl, boy can’t get girl because of her higher social station’ story. When young Josephine, daughter of the Captain, falls in love with a lower-class sailor Ralph Rackstraw, mayhem ensues as the two lovers try to elope… while at sea!

Edmonton Opera presents a delightful new production of this beloved topsy-turvy journey, reimagined in the extravagant 1920s Jazz Age by Cinderella director Rob Herriot. With jazzy new musical arrangements by Ed Windels, this is HMS Pinafore like you've never seen — or heard — before!


WOLFGANG AMADEUS MOZART

DON GIOVANNI 
April 14, 17 & 20, 2018 • Jubilee Auditorium

Sung in Italian with projected English translation
Featuring the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra

Conducted by Christopher Larkin • Directed by Oriol Tomas • 
Costume design by Deanna Finnman • Scenery design by Bretta Gerecke • Lighting design by Barry Steele

Cast: Phillip Addis (Don Giovanni), Erik Anstine (Leporello), Miriam Khalil (Donna Elvira), Michele Capalbo (Donna Anna), John Tessier (Ottavio), Whitney Sloan (Zerlina), Tyler Fitzgerald (Masetto), Kirk Eichelberger (Commendatore)

Opera’s most notorious bad boy is back in action for our final offering in the 2017/18 season! Don Giovanni is arrogant, sly, and takes pride in his promiscuity, leaving a trail of broken hearts along his egotistical path. Yet no one can resist his charm — women are willing to jeopardize their marriages for him, and men will do whatever it takes to walk in his shadow. But what happens when Don Giovanni comes across a mysterious force he cannot charm, outsmart, or conquer?

The crowning masterpiece of Mozart’s Italian repertoire, Don Giovanni is a fascinating opera that combines elements of comedy, tragedy, and the supernatural, asking essential questions about human morality. Baritone Phillip Addis, adored by Edmonton audiences as Figaro in 2014’s The Barber of Seville, will bring his "physically commanding, vocally authoritative energy" (Opera Canada) as the mysteriously seductive hero in Edmonton Opera's bold new production of Don Giovanni.
