The COC season opens on the 30th with Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin featuring Gordon Bintner, Joseph Kaiser and Joyce El-Khoury.  There are eight performances ending on 3rd Novemeber.  The companion work is the premier run of Rufus Wainwright’s Hadrian which opens on October 13th.  It’s a starry cast including Thomas Hampson and Karita Matilla.  There are seven performances ending October 27th.
