The latest Opera Canada

Vol-58-2-Front-Cover.jpgThe latest issue of Opera Canada arrived in my mailbox yesterday.  It’s the first issue produced by Gianmarco Segato as editor and there are a few noticeable changes.  The general structure and look is the same but there are some new bylines.  I noticed Sara Schabas has a rather good piece on Marie Clements.  I’d bet a fiver that Sara is the youngest contributor to the mag in a while.  There’s also an article by Dean Burry on the Canadian Children’s Opera Company tour of Brundibár to the Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary including a trip to Terezín.  The obituaries include, sadly, Émile Belcourt who I saw sing Loge at ENO back in the 70s in the memorable run of The Rhinegold conducted by Reginald Goodall.

There’s lots more including my contributions; a piece profiling Marion Newman, plus reviews of a live performance, a CD and a DVD.  And finally, there’s mention that Alexander Neef saw Gerry Finley in Reimann’s Lear in Salzburg.  He couldn’t could he?  No he couldn’t.  Does to dunk head in cold water…
