Broadcast Premiere of The Perfect Match Airs November 30 on Bravo!Canada

The wait is over!  Developed by Tapestry New Opera Works and produced by Bravo!Fact, Tom Diamond's debut film The Perfect Match (starring tenor Keith Klassen and bass-baritone Peter MacGillivray) has its broadcast premiere on Sunday, November 30 at 7:30pm EST on Bravo!Canada.  

From yesterday's Tapestry press release:
"Our first opera film, written by Krista Dalby and composed by Anthony Young, is having its television debut this Sunday with more broadcasts to follow over the next few weeks! Directed by Tom Diamond, the five-minute The Perfect Match has screened at festivals in St. Louis MO, Santa Barbara CA and Miami FL. Tune in to Bravo! Television to see the very first 'same-socks' opera and watch and listen as a chance encounter transforms two lives forever."
The Perfect Match will air on this Sunday's episode of Bravo!Fact Presents at 7:30pm on Bravo!Canada (viewers outside of Canada might be able to pick it up via satellite).  Reruns are also scheduled for the following times:
If you're interested in the possibilities inherent in contemporary opera, this is a definite must-see.  I played piano in the orchestra and have already seen it several times during Opera To Go 2008.  And yes, McGregor Socks was indeed a corporate sponsor for the film...
