And the 12th Christmas Blog: Opera McGill's 2014-2015 Season!

I've never announced an Opera McGill season via PatricksOperaBlog.

Since I'm being read by so many people from all over the globe, I thought it might be a great way to get the word out. These 12 Blogs of Christmas have been read by over 1,000 people, which is SUPER cool. It's rather a flattering thing to think that over 37,000 people have read my thoughts. THANKS!

Now --- Ukraine, Turkey, Brazil, Britain, Germany, France, Egypt, and North America are you ready?

The plan -- which can easily change based on both the January/February prospective graduate auditions and the fall 2014 season auditions -- is:

November 2014
Our Annual baroque opera production with Maestro Hank Knox and the McGill Baroque Orchestra!
Right now we are looking at a double-bill which will hopefully include a French baroque piece: Rameau's Pygmalion

January 2015
A new adventure into King Arthur's court!
I'm pleased to announce that our January opera will be Camelot!
Jonathan Patterson, (who will be replacing me as director of Opera McGill while I take my first half-sabbatical) and I will co-direct this incredibly moving and exciting piece of musical theatre. Be sure to get your tickets, as I'm sure it will sell out quickly!

February 2015
Black Box Festival 
Title (or titles) To Be Determined

March 2015
To celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the McGill Chamber Orchestra, Boris Brott and I have been planning for over a year now a special collaboration:
Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro conducted by Boris Brott and directed by David Gately!

So next year the Opera McGill students and our audience members will be treated to French baroque opera, one of the great pieces of classic musical theatre, a black box piece sure to exciting, and a brilliantly funny production directed by the brilliant David Gately of Mozart's most brilliant opera!

This season includes my FAVORITE musical and my FAVORITE opera. 

I'm excited and I hope y'all are too!
