Toronto City Opera

TCO Combo New Fonts re Media 181007Toronto City Opera puts on fully staged productions with young professional soloists and an amateur, unauditioned chorus.  It’s piano accompaniment.  I’ve never been to one of their shows, not least because until recently they have performed at the Bickford Centre which I loathe.  Now they are at the Miles Nadal JCC which is a huge improvement and both Jennifer Tung and Alaina Viau are on the creative team, which is promising.  This year they are opening their season with Le nozze di Figaro running on December 6th, 7th and 9th.  The cast includes Dylan Wright as Figaro, Brittany Rae as Susanna, and Lillian Brooks as Cherubino.  There’s also a Traviata in March with Beth Hagerman as Violetta.
