Edmonton Opera is pleased to announce that our outdoor event, Opera al Fresco is sold out. This is a second annual event that takes place at the beautiful Devonian Botanic Garden, with performances by Edmonton Opera Chorus throughout the garden.

This event is a great example of the state of opera in our city; being sold out truly proves that Edmontonians love and support the opera, and we will continue our efforts to offer this wonderful art form in more places, venues, and festivals.

Opera al Fresco is a joint fundraiser for Edmonton Opera and Devonian Botanic Garden, and the next one is scheduled for June 22, 2012.

Edmonton Opera’s next Signature Event is La Divina, at the Hole’s Enjoy Centre, on September 30th, 2011.

Themes of fate, broken hearts drive Eugene Onegin opera

Those who haven’t had their heart broken need not apply.

Each character in the opera Eugene Onegin has the love of something, so understanding love is key to Edmonton Opera’s production, starting in mid-April at the Northern Alberta Jubilee.

“It’s really about, in many ways, living your life with a broken heart,” said director Tom Diamond. “On the first day, when I spoke to the cast, I talked about, at my middle age, I’m kind of glad that at some point in my life, I have had my heart broken, because it equips me to direct this kind of opera.”
