Music: Opera Pro Cantanti @ the Wise Hall


Canada's only repertoire opera company calls the Wise Hall at Victoria and Adanac home, alternating 5 classical operas through its season.

On Tuesday, December 9th, 7:00 pm, they present our stirring new production of I Puritani. Bellini`s Bel Canto masterpiece, I Puritani is an English Civil War tale of political heroism, love, madness and lovers reunited. I Puritani was Bellini's last great melodic masterpiece. Come and hear Julie Duerichen in the role made famous by Callas and Sutherland.

Then on Sunday, December 14th they present a matinée (2:00 pm) performance of our much-loved Lucia di Lammermoor. With its famous mad scene, Lucia di Lammermoor is one of the crowning glories of the Bel Canto repertoire. Clan rivalry and family pride intersect with passionate love to create a compelling tragedy. The work is also the source of opera's most famous sextet and a number of its most famous arias.
