Tapestry Opera presents...
Friday, September 22, 4:00 pm at the Westben Barn & Farmhouse
There are two sides to every story! And now, two venues… Toronto’s Tapestry Opera presents a delightful two-scene opera about late 19th century Ontario, when bandits thrived in the dark corners between stiff Victorian values and the influx of new immigrants. Will a wealthy land owner and his guests be distracted by a travelling Gilbert & Sullivan troupe long enough for a greedy bandit to break into his house? And what of the bandit who has promised his love to both the leading actress and the house’s maid? (limited to 60 patrons)
Now in entering its 38th Season, Tapestry is the leading producer of contemporary Canadian opera. The company is a champion of Canadian works and artists and is a provocateur and revolutionary in the opera/music theatre sphere. Tapestry produces new works in new ways that provoke reaction, engagement and interest in opera, keeping the art form relevant for current and future generations. This past season Tapestry was nominated for 9 Dora awards, taking home 5 awards, making it the most awarded company of the season.
