Things are really starting to slow down so this will be the last “upcoming” post before the summer lull when this feature will go on hiatus. Next week there’s the final vocal concert of the season in the RBA. It’s on Tuesday at noon when Karine Boucher will perform Ravel’s Shéhérazade with Charles Sy joining in with Britten’s Les Illuminations. On Sunday 21st at 5pm in Mazzoleni Hall, Christina Campsall has a recital of 20th century works including the challenging Messiaen piece, Poèmes pour Mi. It’s free.
The following week sees the opening on Friday night at the Arts and Letters Club of Toronto Masque Theatre’s production of Purcell’s The Fairy Queen (also Saturday and Sunday) while Saturday is the first night of Tapestry Opera’s latest new work Rocking Horse Winner at the the Berkeley Street Theatre. This one runs until June 4th. Watch this space for a preview piece. Then there’s Opera 5’s Die Fledermaus opening on June 8th.
