Our production of Verdi’s La Traviata in June 2007 will feature:

Janna Pardy as Violetta (Janna was last heard as Musetta in La Boheme in 2006); Keith Klassen as Alfredo (Keith made his debut as Rudolfo in La Boheme in 2006); Andrew Tees as Germont (Andrew has sung Figaro in Barber of Seville and Marcello in La Boheme); Robert Milne as Marquis d’Obigny (Basilio in Barber and Colline in La Boheme); Meghan Walsh as Flora (Meghan was The Abbess in Suor Angelica in 2006); and debuting Dalhousie students Andrew Pelrine as Gastone  and Maureen Batt as Annina.
The show will also feature the MCO Chorus prepared by Nina Scott-Stoddart and conducted by Caron Daley, and the irreplaceable Tara Scott at the piano.

MCO has decided to present an evening of the music of Richard Rodgers as our second show for the Opera Festival in June 2007.

With a Song in My Heart will feature Halifax soprano Vanessa Buhr (Genovieffa in Suor Angelica), Truro baritone Ross Thompson and Lunenburg’s Nina Scott-Stoddart singing the songs of Richard Rodgers, accompanied by Kate Carver at the piano (I went to a marvellous party, 2006).
