    Bravo! Calgary Opera marks 40th anniversary

    Travelling to Calgary this week, and I read this article - front page of the Arts section of the Calgary Herald. A good news story for a change!

    BTW, as a teaser, I will be discussing one of the "three new large-scale Canadian operas" premiered in Calgary on my next OTF, on or around May 2nd.

    Bravo? Find me a opera that didn't stand in one piece for 40 years... closing and deconstructing opera house after, say, two weeks after it's opening, that would be historical.

    I was at the Calgary Opera last weekend for Bohemè. It was alright, Bohemè not being my favorite opera. They announced their season for next year: Otello, Falstaff, and La Traviata for Verdi's 200th birthday. I'm pretty excited for those, although I do wish that after 40 years they'd be up to the task of *Wagner's* 200th birthday.
