There’s not a lot of opera in Toronto in the summer but Summer Opera Lyric Theatre has announced it’s 29th season of performances by young and emerging artists in Toronto. This season there are three offerings:
- First up is Marschner’s Der Vampyr. There are four performances on July 31st (8pm), August 2nd (2pm), 5th (2pm) and 8th (8pm).
- Ambitiously enough, this is followed by Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos on August 1st (2pm), 4th (8pm), 6th (8pm) and 8th (2pm).
- And finally, another rarity, von Flotow’s Martha. Again four performances on August 1st (8pm), 5th (8pm), 7th (8pm) and 9th (2pm).
All three shows are directed by Bill Silva-Marin and will be performed in the Robert Gill Theatre at the University of Toronto. Single tickets are $28 ($22 students/seniors) or $60 for the lot. Tickets are available by phone at 416-366-7723 or online at www.stlc.com.
