Opera Study Day
After a two-year hiatus, “Opera Study Day” will return
on Saturday April 27, 10:00 AM
Presented by Opera Nova Scotia in collaboration with
The University of King’s College, this introductory series of talks,
performance excerpts and film, has served as a lively background
to the ONS Spring Production. It has been thoroughly enjoyed
in several past Seasons as an informative and informal part
of Opera Nova Scotia’s community education mandate.
Organized by new ONS Board Member Dr. Shao-Pin Luo,
the Study Day theme will be:
“Gilbert & Sullivan, in Their Times and Ours”.
Speakers will be ONS Artistic Director Dr. Walter Kemp
on the duo’s influence on the evolution of light opera,
Kings Faculty Professor Dr. Simon Kow on a modern Mikado,
and Kings-Dal Joint Faculty Professor
/ Dalhousie Associate Dean of Arts Dr. Roberta Barker
on how The Gondoliers relates to Victorian melodrama.
After lunch there will be a film presentation.
