Celebrating Elite Emerging Artists
Welcome to our NEW festival! It is our 12th year as a festival and our 17th year as a young artist program. This year we embrace change and celebrate all that is “new” in NU-O-VA.
Our Mainstage operatic productions are new works – contemporary operas in English that are based on prize-winning literary works.
We have a new partner, Fort Edmonton Park, affording us the exquisite Capitol Theatre for our new evening of Gilbert & Sullivan (Topsy-Turvy), and this beautiful historical living museum will be the perfect backdrop to our outdoor opera, Our Town.
With so many changes, this is the perfect year to rebrand our festival to the NUOVA Opera and Music Theatre Festival. We look forward to growing our local presence as an outstanding organization that produces main stage events of professional stature, in the same way that our program has grown a national presence as the best training program in Canada.
We hope that you will feel inspired to spread the word so that our new festival can reach out to many new patrons and supporters. Let’s embrace the new in NU-O-VA!
