For Episode 4, we welcome back Opera Canada magazine’s editor, Wayne Gooding along with blogger, John Gilks and Gianna Wichelow, the COC’s Senior Communications Manager, Creative. Hosting once again is the COC’s Adult Programs Manager, Gianmarco Segato.
This week in the news we debate Robert Everett Green’s Globe and Mail article: “Il Trovatore has an ugly resonance against a backdrop of Roma persecution” and the Opera Canada Corner features Wayne’s round-up of highlights from the upcoming opera season across Canada.
There’s an interview with Canadian director Marilyn Gronsdal who is heading to Opéra de Montréal to re-mount the COC’s production of The Flying Dutchman. Also, on the eve of the new season of Metropolitan Opera live HD transmissions, we had a lively round-table discussion about the influence of the HD phenomenon on opera.
Let us know you’re listening! Contact us with your ideas/thoughts/comments on Facebook, Twitter or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Tell us what opera production in Canada you are most looking forward to seeing and we'll put your name in a draw for a prize courtesy of Universal Classics!
