DIY Opera provides resources for schools to participate in the making of a new opera. This year, we're very excited to work with Edmonton Public Schools' Abbott School.
An interactive display of the productions Edmonton Opera has staged over the past 50 years will be posted today, on the 50 Days of Opera page. Check out the similarities between playbill designs, reminsice over your favourite production and recall who sang in which production with this online timeline.
We want to hear your favourite memory of Edmonton Opera! Many supporters of EO vividly recall the first production they saw staged at the Jubilee, or their favourite opera moment in Edmonton. Please share these memories with us, either by submitting online or by filling out at postcard at one of our outreach events. We will post these memories on our website.
Trivia questions about the production of Salome, as well as Edmonton Opera's 50-year history, will be posted online throughout the day. Participants will have chances to win tickets to Edmonton Opera's first production of the season, Salome.
Each day, clues to a different location in the city will be posted, each having something to do with Edmonton Opera's golden anniversary and our 50 years of history in the city. Through the website, Facebook and Twitter, participants will have a chance to win tickets to Edmonton Opera's first production of the season, Richard Straus
