The Bicycle Opera Project is back in Ontario and have 4 performances in Toronto next week. More info on the facebook event page. Get a good primer on the project from this video from the CBC’s The National.
The Bicycle Opera Project is a group of young professional artists dedicated to bringing high-quality, accessible opera to communities across Ontario… traveling exclusively by bicycle!
Through our passion for representing contemporary Canadian music, we aim to give the age-old art form a new spin, by introducing audiences to a wealth of fabulous contemporary operatic works. In keeping with our mission to make opera accessible, we perform only in English, in intimate and unique venues, with a variety of dramatic content relevant to todays audiences. We use the bicycle to present a car-free alternative to touring and to break down the perception around opera. We can change a flat tire! We get dirty too!
