The Pollack Braun Blatt Advisory Group encourages us to dream

Oct 24, 2022

The Pollack Braun Blatt Advisory Group at CIBC Wood Gundy believes that we should all be expecting more. And just like Angelina (Cenerentola) in La Cenerentola, this multigenerational wealth management practice also believes in the power of dreams to design the kind of lives that we all envision for ourselves.


Often these dreams need a little help from a “fairy godmother” to keep them on track. Rossini’s opera switches out the magical fairy godmother we have come to know in the Disney version of Cinderella, for the wise philosopher Alidoro. And it is Alidoro who helps Angelina along the path to fulfilling her dream of escaping a life of servitude and living a life filled with love, freedom, and a Prince Charming. Or in this case, Prince Ramiro.


With a belief in the power and importance of managing personal finances for individuals and families so that they can fulfill their dreams, The Pollack Braun Blatt Advisory Group can be considered a financial advisor version of Alidoro. Their years of experience can help to create clear financial plans for moving from a place of stress into a place of clarity and control for clients, enabling their dreams to come true.


Angelina knows that she deserves a happy life and that it doesn’t have to come at the expense of sacrificing kindness and forgiveness. Her Alidoro makes all the difference for Angelina, just as The Pollack Braun Blatt Advisory Group does for their clients.


Thank you to The Pollack Braun Blatt Advisory Group for a desire to see fellow Winnipeggers thrive and for their investment in the community through their generous support as a performance sponsor of La Cenerentola.


We hope that La Cenerentola will encourage us all to dream a little more.

Audrey Hubbard has seen opera grow and change a great deal in Manitoba throughout her 95 years. By making a planned gift to Manitoba Opera’s Endowment Fund, she is excited to be part of that growth well into the future. Audrey caught the opera bug as a young girl during the Second World War. A traveling company had come to town to perform in the old auditorium (now the Archives Building), and Audrey’s father took her family to see Rigoletto.
