Into October

220px-dreigroschenoperThings are still a bit slow on the Toronto opera front.  That said, today Soup Can Theatre are doing a concert version of The threepenny Opera at the Monarch Tavern.  Three actors; Christine Jeffries, Sarah Thorpe and Scott Garland, will sing all the roles.  There are three performances at 4pm, 6.30pm and 9pm.  Tickets are $13.  More details at

Then Thursday night sees the opening of the COC’s season with Sondra Radvanovsky in Bellini’s Norma.  There are eight performances.  By some weird scheduling quirk there is a nine day gap before the second on the 15th.  That’s also the night I have media tickets for so there won’t be a review until after then.  Sondra is singing the first four shows with Elza van den Heever coming in for the second half of the run.  Word is that it’s an inoffensively bland production but we’ll see.
