“No Tenors Allowed”
Monday, March 24, 2014 at 7:30pm
An Evening of Artistic Collaboration
ESO conductor Bill Eddins will lead the ensemble through a dynamic program that’s sure to engage a wide variety of audience members. A selection of prominent works will be performed, including numbers from Carmen, Macbeth, Il barbiere di Siviglia, and Tannhäuser.
Since 1963, the ESO and Edmonton Opera have benefited from a long-standing history of mutual support and creative collaboration. “This concert represents only one of many exciting endeavours the organizations have shared during the span of their fifty-year partnership,” explains Annemarie Petrov, Executive Director of the ESO. “The ESO strongly believes that fostering connections and unity amongst groups with similar mandates will significantly bolster and diversify the City of Edmonton.”
With the knowledge that unity creates an enhanced culture of strength and wellness, the ESO maintains a commitment to partnering with those organizations that also strive to produce excellent live performances. As Tim Yakimec, Edmonton Opera’s general manager further explains, “Edmonton has an excellent reputation as a city where the arts can flourish, and Edmonton Opera is proud to be able to contribute to that reputation, in part because of our excellent relationship with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra. We are excited to be able to collaborate on new performances like ‘No Tenors Allowed,’ outside of our regular productions, adding to the vibrant arts culture.”
