3 Free Performances of Tapestry's Get Stuffed May 15 in the Distillery District

Of all the subjects they could have chosen for a new kids' opera, librettist Alexis Diamond and composer Richard Payne seized on a unique idea: an opera about healthy food choices. Get Stuffed is set in a school cafeteria with a cast of singing foods, some healthy, some not so healthy. This opera is performed mostly for school tours, so it will be a rare opportunity indeed to see one of three free performances on May 15 at the Distillery District in Toronto. The performances will be at 11am, 1pm, and 3pm in Trinity Square (aka the space with the giant eggbeater).

Get Stuffed is a Tapestry New Opera Works production featuring Christoper Ryan, Christopher Mayell, Lisa di Maria, Catharine Carew, and Justin Welch, with Lizzie Lavado on piano and Ed Squires on percussion. Although performances are free, visitors are asked to bring a non-perishable food item for the Daily Bread Food Bank.

    I love your blog. I am a 43 year old woman who has decided to learn to play the piano. I have been following your blog for 6 months. I have been taking lessons for 3 months and still am very bad, but making baby steps. I am trying to find the sheet music to this song

    Have you ever heard of it? It is very neat sounding.
