Sensational Young Canadian Opera Diva
to give Halifax Recital
Soprano Meghan Lindsay, one of the brightest young stars on the Canadian opera scene, will
sing the Distinguished Artist Fall Fundraising Recital for Opera Nova Scotia, Friday November
7, 7:30 p.m., at the Lilian Piercey Concert Hall, Maritime Conservatory of Performing Arts,
6199 Chebucto Road, Halifax. Pianist will be Lynette Wahlstrom.
Tickets are available from the Opera NS Office (425-8586) and at the door of the concert:
general admission $30 (incl $10 tax receipt), students $5.
She will present what some consider the most challenging of all types of vocal recital, one
devoted almost exclusively of operatic solo highlights. Included will be two repertoires for
which she already received audience acclaim in North America and Europe: a gallery of
heroines from Handel and Mozart. As well there will be representative Czech characters, some
Puccini favorites, and more!
"Halifax audiences will be thrilled to know that Meghan has accepted our invitation to sing for
us again", enthused Dr Walter H. Kemp, ONS Artistic Director. "Her brilliant vocal artistry and
sensitive acting inspired standing ovations at our 2013 production of Verdi's Luisa Miller. This
recital is a must hear event!"
Meghan will come to Halifax immediately after her appearance with Toronto's Opera Atelier
in the title role of Handel's Alcina, a production which is the current hot ticket in Canada's
opera capital and for which her characterization has been praised by music critics for beauty,
sympathy and pathos delivered with solid vocal quality.
A feature member of the Toronto Opera Atelier, she has sung Lully roles with the Royal Opera
at the Court of Versailles and at Glimmerglass, Donna Anna in Don Giovanni, and Agathe
in Der Freischuetz. In April she will rejoin the company as Amour in the Berlioz edition of
Gluck's Orpheus and Euridice. Her Mozart portraits were welcomed by audiences in the
Netherlands, as was her debut this year with Ars Lyrica at the Houston Early Music Festival. In
2015-16 she is off to Versailles once more with Opera Atelier's Armide.
