Season

The Marriage of Figaro

Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte

The Marriage of Figaro, one of the most beloved operas in the entire repertory, remains the benchmark against which all other comic operas are measured. In 1946, Mozart’s masterpiece was the first complete opera presented at the University of Toronto. We are excited to present this new period production, sung in Italian, designed by Fred Perruzza with costumes by Lisa Macgill. Michael Patrick Albano directs and Sandra Horst conducts.

Maid and Master: The Massey Murder

Music by the Opera Student Composer Collective

Libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte

The normally staid city of Toronto was thrust into the limelight in February 1915 when Carrie Davies, an 18-year old British maid, shot and killed Charles Bert Massey in defence against his sexual advances. Public opinion was wildly divided at the time as the Masseys were one of the most powerful families in Canada. U of T Opera joins forces with the Faculty’s student composers and the Women’s Chamber Choir to present the premiere of this extraordinary drama based upon real events. The opera will be sung in English with costume design by Lisa Macgill and lighting devised by Wesley McKenzie. Michael Patrick Albano directs and Sandra Horst conducts.
