Calgary Opera is one of Canada’s most innovative professional opera companies, presenting three mainstage productions every year.

The Italian Girl in Algiers

Nov 16, 20 & 22, 2013

The saucy and spirited Isabella searches for her lost love Lindoro in the foreign country of Algiers, only to find herself the focus of the powerful Mustafa’s unwanted affections. It’s a good thing she knows how to turn the tables to her advantage.  Let Rossini’s bubbly music put a smile on your face in this rollicking comedy of errors.

Performed at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium

The Flying Dutchman

Feb 1, 5 & 7, 2014

The Flying Dutchman is doomed to endlessly roam the ocean until a woman can break his curse with an undying pledge of love. Senta, the daughter of a ship’s captain, has always dreamed it would be her. One day a wealthy ship comes to port with a dark and mysterious captain at its helm. Be swept away in this haunting ghost story brought to life with Wagner’s powerful and enchanting music.

Madame Butterfly

April 5, 9 & 11, 2014

It’s the beginning of the 20th century, and the young geisha Cio-cio-san has just married an American Navy Officer, Lieutenant Pinkerton. They have scarcely celebrated their wedding night when Pinkerton must return to America. Though three long years pass, Cio-cio refuses to remarry, lovingly raising Pinkerton’s son and awaiting his return. One of the most popular operas of all time, Puccini’s luscious and poignant music does not disappoint.

The Rape of Lucretia

May 2, 4 , 6 & 8, 2014

In ancient Rome, war makes a husband’s time at home scarce, but the chaste Lucretia never betrays her love, Collantinus. Not believing that such a woman could exist, the King’s son Tarquinius sets about to test her loyalty. Britten’s highly charged opera is performed by the Emerging Artist ensemble with chamber orchestra in the intimate venue of the Arrata Opera Centre.
