After considerable discussion we have decided very sadly to cancel the June 2020 production of The Merry Widow.

Current restrictions on travel and gatherings will most likely be lifted only very slowly and we have absolutely no guarantee that life will return to normal by June.

It is so very disappointing to do this but we hope you will all understand.  

Mark your calendars for the June production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance.

MCO will present this lively operetta at the Osprey Arts Centre in Shelburne on Tuesday, June 18, in Halifax at the Maritime Conservatory on Thursday, June 20 and in Lunenburg at Central United Church on Staruday, June 22. All shows will begin at 7.30 p.m.

We have an all-Nova Scotia cast including soprano Jodie Alcorn-Miller, tenor Patrick Simms, baritone Ross Thompson, bass J-P Décosse and, of course, our wonderful Music Director Tara Scott.

Tickets for Shelburne will be available from the theatre. Tickets for Halifax and Lunenburg will be available in late May.

Join MCO on Friday, May 3rd at 7 p.m. at the Lunenburg Curling Club for a jolly good time at Ye Olde Opera Pub.  Grog and grub will be on hand as well as great music from John Barr and Ian Anderson.

All proceeds from this event will go towards the June production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance which will be performed on June 18 (Shelburne), June 20 (Halifax) and June 22 (Lunenburg).

Tickets will be available in April from Shop on the Corner, Lunenburg; Strings ‘n’ Things, Bridgewater; Kinburn Pharmasave, Mahone Bay; online through; or call 902-634-3199 to reserve.
