Next week is a bit crazy. Tomorrow is the Elizabeth Krehm memorial concert in aid of St. Mike’s ICU. They are playing Mahler 2 and it’s PWYC with a tax receipt. 8pm at Metropolitan United Church. Tueday sees the opening of Philippe Boesmann’s Julie at 8pm at the Bluma Appel. It’s an important, if bleak, contemporary piece and for the first time here, in a Soundstreams/CanStage presentation, it will be sung in English. It runs until the 29th so plenty of chance to catch it.
Thursday sees the Tap:Ex Metallurgy; a collaboration between Krisztina Szabó, David Pomeroy and punk experimentalists Fucked Up. It’s at the Ernest Balmer Studio at the Distillery with additional shows on Friday and Saturday. Friday night music, in conjunction with the Turner exhibition, continues at the AGO. And finally, one of the few MetHD broadcasts of the season worth seeing, Berg’s Lulu, is in the usual cinemas on Saturday at noon. Finally, on Sundat at 2.30pm at the Jane Mallett Theatre, Voicebox are presenting a concert version with piano accompaniment of Borodin’s epic Prince Igor.
