News from Tapestry

So the rumours have been around for a while but today the big announcement about Tapestry’s major project for 2017/18 went public.  It’s a joint production with Canadian Stage and Vancouver Opera of an operatic version of Morris Panych’s adaptation of Gogol’s The Overcoat which, as a stage play, won critical acclaim in 1998.  The music is by James Rolfe and it will premiere at the Bluma Appel Thaetre in March 2018 before moving to the Vancouver Playhouse as part of the second Vancouver Opera Festival.  The idea originated in the 2014 LibLab which produced a very funny scene of a hapless customer being beaten senseless by his tailors.  (something that should have happened to Cheetoh Benito long ago).
