Hi All, I went to the UofT student composers Opera last year and it was pretty good, so I think I'll go again. This year the Opera is a murder mystery parody - sounds like fun! And admission is free:) The concert starts at 2:30, I'll get there 2-2:15 and I'll post my number on the day of the event and post my location in the comments when I get there so we can find each other, so check back for that. Details from the event listing ( https://music.utoronto.ca/concerts-events.php?eid=2162&cDate=2019-01-20 ): "In Francesco Cilea's opera, Adriana Lecouvreur, the heroine dies by inhaling the scent of poisoned flowers. with cruel irony, the great diva Adriana Amaro meets her untimely death on the night of her Covent Garden debut when real poison is substituted. But who could the murderer be? Her possessive singing teacher? The conductor she loathes? The understudy who covets her fame? As the Faculty of Music's composition students unleash their comic talents in this murder mystery parody, you, the audience - in the closing moments of the opera - will decide. Michael Patrick Albano direct and Sandra Horst conducts this original student opera. "
This looks like another great night of new music at the UofT New Music festival, and its free, so that's nice:) Show starts at 7:30 and I'll get there 15-20min before then. Check the comments when you arrive, I'll keep my location/details updated there so we can find each other.
