Tapestry's Opera Briefs Opens September 26

This week and next I'm in rehearsals for Tapestry New Opera Works' Opera Briefs, an annual compilation of highlights from the Composer/Librettist Laboratory. This is your first chance of the season to see some of the new work produced in the Tapestry studio, including 10 short scenes by composers Scott Brubacher, Justine Chen, Jack Perla, and Teresa Connors, with librettos by Spy Dénommé-Welch, David Brock, Ken Gass, and Andrew Moodie. Jennifer Tung and I are co-musical directors for a cast featuring soprano Carla Huhtanen, mezzo soprano Lauren Phillips countertenor Scott Belluz, tenor Keith Klassen, and baritone Justin Welch. The production is directed by Tom Diamond and runs at the Ernest Balmer Studio in the Distillery September 26 and 27 at 8pm, with a final performance on the 28th at 3pm.  

Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door, and $10 for students and arts workers. The Facebook event listing has been circulated, so you'll need to buy your tickets soon before the event sells out. You can either call (416) 537-6066 or visit TOtix in order to grab your seats. Hope to see you there!
