Edmonton Opera 2012-2013 Mainstage Productions


Juliet Kiri Palmer
World Premiere of Shelter

November 15-18, 2012
Co-produced with Tapestry New Opera
Co-presented by U of A's Festival of Ideas

Shelter: a nuclear family adrift in the atomic age. Since Prometheus stole fire from the Gods, we have flirted with the dangerous beauty of science. In the invisible shadow of Fukushima, how will we survive when knowledge so outstrips understanding?

In this fable a father protects his family at any cost, a mother chases storms, and a nuclear physicist is midwife to a child who glows in the dark… When the dashing Pilot enters, our world is forever altered.

Ana Sololovic
Svadba - Wedding

January 12, 13, 16, 18, 19, 2013
Produced by Queen of Puddings Music Theatre

The night before a wedding, girlfriends prepare the bride-to-be in a ravishing and cathartic Balkan rite of passage. An intoxicating a cappella tour de force for six female opera singers, sung in Serbian with English surtitles, by Ana Sokolovic (The Midnight Court).
