Next Monday, December 21st, Essential Opera is streaming a new one act opera for three singers and string quartet by Monica Pearce called December. Julia and Natasha are newly in a relationship and are visiting Julia’s parents for the first time for the holidays. We are promised a light hearted piece about travel, holiday stress, family and relationships. It premieres at 8pm (Nova Scotia time I think) and it’s ticketed. Cast, crew and ticketing information is here.
Also, ahead of Thursday night’s (free) Electric Messiah, Soundstreams have posted a series of interviews in which Lawrence Cherney talks to Adam Scime, Ian Cusson, Teiya Kasahara, Lindsay McIntyre and Wesley Chen about this year’s approach. Short extracts are included so you can get a sense of how this is coming together. You can find them on the Soundstreams Youtube channel.
