Tapestry New Opera Works Nominated for 6 Dora Awards

I've just received word that Tapestry New Opera Works has been nominated in six categories for the 2009 Dora Mavor Moore Awards.

In the Outstanding New Musical/Opera category, the following operas have been nominated:
  • Sanctuary Song: Abigail Richardson, composer and Marjorie Chan, librettist
  • The Perfect Screw: Alexis Diamond, librettist and Abigail Richardson, composer
  • The Virgin Charlie: Taylor Graham, librettist and William Rowson, composer
  • My Mother's Ring: Marcia Johnson, librettist and Stephen Andrew Taylor, composer
(The Perfect Screw, Virgin Charlie, and My Mother's Ring were featured in Opera To Go 2009.)

In addition, Wayne Strongman was nominated for Outstanding Musical Direction in Opera To Go, and Sanctuary Song (co-produced by Tapestry and Theatre Direct in collaboration with Luminato) was nominated in the Outstanding Opera Production category.

Congratulations to the creative staff, cast, musicians, and crew that were involved with the creation and performance of these works! I am honored to have coached and performed in Opera To Go as well as in the 2007 workshop of Sanctuary Song that led to the work's Dora-nominated production.
