Wow, what an incredible season this has been with Opera McGill. I can't believe the end is already here! This Friday's performance, a scenes program, "Playing with Shakespeare": Opera Scenes based on Shakespeare, will be my swan song with this wonderful program. And what a way to go out! Our all-Shakespeare season has been an invigorating opportunity for academic and artistic pursuit, thanks to the vision of Opera McGill director, Patrick Hansen. Witness the culmination of this avant-garde experiment Friday (tomorrow), March 21 at 7:30PM in Pollack Hall in collaboration with music director, Tyson Deaton, Shakespearean actor, Paul Hopkins, and Sheakespeare scholar, Paul Yachnin. I will be playing the role of "Mistress Ford" in a hilarious straight Shakespeare scene from The Merry Wives of Windsor and "Frau Fluth" in the complimentary operatic letter duet from Nicolai's Die lustigen Weiber von Windsor.
