Every year NUOVA endeavours to share exceptional artistry in intimate venues! We have made some changes to the festival that we hope make concerts more accessible and create theatrical experiences that are highly memorable.
Our Tuesday evening Song Soirées have become Midday Music with High Tea in the lovely upper hall of Trinity Anglican Church and Cosmopolitan Music Society.
Vocal Gems and Excerpt Extravaganza will move to Stencil Hall at Taylor University. This hall offers our artists a beautiful stage to fill with resonant tone, while providing you an accessible, comfortable concert hall!
We are thrilled to share the opulent ballroom of The Oasis Centre as our background to Bellini’s bel canto setting of Romeo and Juliet (I Capuleti e I Montecchi). This thrust stage will give our patrons the most intimate operatic experience we have ever provided.
The festival has lots of special extras including Christiane Riel and Laura Loewen offeringa spectacular array of French music on May 31. And the Picnic in the Park on June 18 and Festival Place Patio Series on July 1 at Festival Place will be two opportunities to share some great food, a relaxed environment and well known classic music theatre. All this before we cap our season with Puccini’s beloved La Boheme and Jason Robert Brown’s acclaimed Parade.
