Season 4 Episode 35

received_1911847322204631We survived! Paul and Fawnda took an eventful a road trip to the Badlands Amphitheatre to catch Mercury Opera and Opera Classica Nuova’s co-production of CARMEN—complete with roasted street corn, bright prairie skies, and an unmatchable backdrop for Bizet’s masterpiece. It was a wild ride, and we recorded some observations on the trip home.

If you have a show—or even a whole season—to share with us, please send the details to idgidance@gmail.com. We’ll do our best to include a comprehensive listing of performances in YEG during our next season.

Season 4 Episode 32

It’s a #SummerStock Opera Special! Fawnda takes Colleen Feehan and Laura Raboud to see the Dora Award-winning burlesque spectacle of Canadian Opera Company’s Orphée+ at the Banff Centre, and we talk with mezzo-soprano Anna Gomá about her eponymous role in Carmen as Mercury Opera preps for its upcoming show in the Badlands Amphitheatre.
On the way, we found a hidden road trip gem at the tasting room of Grey Owl Meadery. Visit them off HWY 22 near Alder Flats for a taste of mead made from all-Albertan honey. Delish!
