Sweat

Yesterday I finally managed to do something bike related in conjunction with Bicycle Opera Project’s current tour of Sweat.  I got an early train out to Aldershot, biked to Hamilton and joined up with the bike tour of historic Hamilton organised by the Workers Arts and Heritage Centre to complement the opera, before seeing the afternoon performance of Sweat at WAHC.  I’ll add some bikey/historical observations at the end but since this is an opera blog let’s cut to the chase.

Topher does it again

Topher Mokrzewski does it again.  This time it’s an operatic spoof on our appalling, indeed surreal, mayor.  Aaron Dimoff sang the role of Rob Ford. Alex Beley and Tyler Fitzgerald are the Ford Nation Chorus. All the singers are part of Calgary Opera Emerging Artist Development program.

Hat tip too to Brent Bambury and the CBC.
