Introducing a lifelong love

There are two reasons why you might think of taking your offspring to Edmonton Opera's production of Cavalleria Rusticana/I Pagliacci on Saturday, Oct. 22; Tuesday Oct. 25; or Thursday, Oct. 27.

Firstly, whatever your love - from camping and soccer to art and music - if you involve your children you are making them a lifetime gift.

Moving to London as a kid, my mother thought I should "take advantage of a lot of things we dinnae have in Glasgow."

Productions at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden was one.

On a typically wet British afternoon, I remember taking a train to meet my mum before the curtain went up on my first opera, Cavalleria Rusticana/I Pagliacci.

It didn't matter that they were sung in Italian, the tales of jealousy, seduction, unrequited love, and the tragic side of comedy, are timeless.

What amazed me were the vast, imaginative sets, brilliantly lit.

The second reason for catching the show is the voice of Richard Margison. I remember sitting in the Bistro Praha one night in the 1980s when, after performing at the Jubilee Auditorium, he belted out a few lines of an aria. All heads turned. The crowd stopped chewing their schnitzels.

Find out where he's enjoying a glass of wine after the show. He still often lets a Gordon Lightfoot number let fly.
