The western Canadian premiere of Rossini’s final comedy! From the composer of The Barber of Seville comes a raucous comedy with gorgeous bel canto melodies and vocal fireworks galore! Come along for the ride as a love triangle unfolds between notorious skirt-chaser Count Ory, his cunning Page, and a feisty Countess — complete with naughty nuns, scandalous set-ups, and way too much wine.
Edmonton’s own John Tessier, praised by Edmonton Journal for his “effortlessly light tenor” as the Prince in last year’s Cinderella, stars as the Count in our madcap new production directed by Brian Deedrick. This Western Canadian premiere promises you an unforgettable night of laughter, entertainment, and Rossini's charming music!
