More details have been announced on Tapestry Opera’s season. This week sees Tapestry Briefs: Booster Shots; previously previewed here. January 24th, 2015 sees Tapestry Songbook V with baritone Peter McGillivray and young Canadian singers in concert performing the beautiful and absurd repertoire from Tapestry’s 35 year old Canadian collection.
Tap:Ex Tables Turned on March 20th-21st, 2015, pairs composer, turn table artist, and cinematographer, Nicole Lizée with the lovely and talented soprano Carla Huhtanen. I’m curious to see how that turns out!
And maybe biggest of all on yet to be announced dates in May 2015 Tapestry will present John Harris’ and Marjorie Chan’s M’dea Undone; a coproduction with Scottish opera. It’s a story of love and the ultimate betrayal which probes the depths of the Medea psychology in a journey from the Middle East to the White House. It’s a world premiere and will be directed by the brilliant Tim Albery with Canadian conductor Jordan de Souza on the podium. No casting has been announced but Teiya Kasahara sang the title role in workshops. We can but hope!
