You can also see the pieces done by various city media outlets about our fantastic, world-class singers. Links will be continously updated, so be sure to check back!
Opera season in Edmonton is busy, as the Edmonton Opera is pleased to present not only three mainstage productions, but two contemporary Canadian productions as well, known collectively as the ATB Canadian Series.
