NUOVA Opera & Music Theatre Festival

Join Opera NUOVA throughout the six-weeks of this annual classic music Festival to share in the promotion and celebration of Canada’s emerging artists. Each year, we bring over 80 singers, pianists, stage directors and other personnel from across the country to Edmonton to share in the development of their craft and talents as they help audiences discover the passion and love of opera and musical theatre. We endeavour to share exceptional artistry in intimate venues and at reasonable prices.

We are excited to return to Convocation Hall for our Vocal Gems and Opera Excerpts Concert (Divas of the Night). For the first time our Wednesday night Song Soirée Series will be held at Holy Trinity Anglican Church. We have added two very special events to celebrate Canada’s 150th – our Songs from Asia, on June 3 and our staged concert, Letters Home, on June 17 at Roberston-Wesley United Church.

This spring our lineup of operatic festival productions celebrates our diversity with British Gilbert and Sullivan Patience, a Russian Eugene Onegin, and a Czechoslovakian The Cunning Little Vixen. The festival closes with Rodgers & Hammerstein’s beloved Carousel.

The exceptional artistry of our casts and crews of emerging Canadian singers will undoubtedly have you whistling “June is bustin’ out all over” as you leave the theatre!
