On Arts Alive today... The Edmonton Opera's season opening performances of Cavelleria Rusticana and I Paglicci. The twin tales of love gone wrong, of despair and revenge air well matched and have casts that include the great tenor Richard Margison doing Cavelleria for the first time, and baritone Gregory Dahl, along with Alberta-born soprano Laura Whalen and Dana Beth Miller and Mia Lennox-Williams among others led by Conductor Tyrone Paterson and Director Valerie Kuinka. Valerie, who is married to Richard Margison, says both operas are in what is called classic verismo style.
The Edmonton Opera presents the two operas on October 22, 25, and 27 at 7:30pm in the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium, at 11455-87 Avenue. For tickets call the Box office at 780-429-1000 or Ticketmaster.
