Opera, full speed ahead!
Tosca by Puccini
If you've enjoyed Madama Butterfly back in 2015, you'll be happy to learn that soprano Melody Moore is BACK in the leading role of Puccini's opera. I am also extremely excited to see that bariton Gregory Dahl will also be back in Montreal, this time as Chief Scarpia. Seriously, no one does opera villain as well as him! In an interview with Bravissimo back in 2012, Dahl described Scarpia as ''one of the true evil men in opera''.
New co-production with Cincinnatti Opera presented from September 16 to 23, 2017.
La cenerentola by Rossini
The ultimate fairytale featuring French-Canadian mezzo-soprano Julie Boulianne in the role of Angelina (aka Cinderella). Julie has sung all over the world, including various performances at The Metropolitan Opera, once with soprano Renee Flemming, and this other time with renowned opera singer Placido Domingo conducting!
Presented from November 11 to 18, 2017.
JFK by David T. Little and RoYce Vavrek
With everything that is happening south of the border, let's take a trip down memory lane. Co-commissioned with Fort Worth Opera, the world premiere took place on April 23, 2016, in Fort Worth Texas. That was last year guys, which means you'll get to experience a Canadian premiere! The POTUS and the First Lady are interpreted by bariton Matthew Worth and mezzo-soprano Daniela Mack, and it will be for both of them their debut with the Opera de Montreal. #theresalwaysafirst And of course, we are very excited to have tenor John Mac Master back on the Wilfrid-Pelletier stage! Last time we saw him was in 2011 performing Herodias in Salome!!
Presented from January 27 to February 3, 2018.

I am passionate about opera. I choose to see the best in the things around me. I make the most out of every situation. I am an enthusiast. I don't pretend to be a critic, and I certainly am no snob. These are my thoughts, highly influenced by too many high note vibrations and good wine.
