A SEASON THAT CUTS LIKE A KNIFE
Manitoba Opera’s 20/21 Season to Feature
A Manitoba First: Sweeney Todd and the Political Thriller: Tosca
In its 48th season, Manitoba Opera (MO) will be bringing two outstanding works to the stage. Stephen Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd – a masterpiece of American repertoire which has won or been nominated for over 60 awards – will open the season November 7, 19, 13, and Puccini’s Tosca – one of opera’s most suspenseful and compelling works – will be presented April 10, 13, 16. Both productions will be presented at the Centennial Concert Hall. For tickets call 204-957-7842 or go to mbopera.ca
These showpieces are unparalleled theatrical experiences. Sweeney Todd is a darkly comic look at poverty and vengeance in Victorian England; Tosca is a first-rate political thriller fueled by jealously, lust, and double crossings. Each features amazing music and arias, edge-of-your-seat stories, sets that will transport you to another time and place – all delivered by a host of incomparable artists from all over North America.
A Manitoba First! This will be the first time that a full-scale production of Sweeney Todd will be presented in the province. Manitoba Opera is the only arts organization in the province able to present this work as written with a full orchestra, sets, and costumes.View Media Release
