London Opera Guild Gala Concert

Ever wonder if you might be interested in opera? Well, this is just the kind of relaxed concert to go to in order to get acquainted.

I'll be singing some beautiful and fun music with my friends Jen Cyr (soprano), Jade Vaughan (mezzo-soprano), Colin Bell (tenor), and Parker Clements (baritone) in a concert of operatic favourites. We'll all sing an aria or two that we really like, of course, but we're also going to highlight Mozart's Don Giovanni and Gounod's Faust.

Thanks to the London Opera Guild for providing the opportunity to perform. Tickets will be available at the door.

Please come and enjoy!

Verdi's Falstaff

Verdi's Falstaff

I have the pleasure of playing Sir John himself in UWOpera's production of Verdi's hilarious comedy Falstaff. This opera, sometimes called the most successful adaptation of a Shakespeare play to opera, premiered on February 9, 1893 and is based on the bard's Merry Wives of Windsor, and scenes from Henry IV parts one and two. It is the last opera Verdi wrote and has elements of all his other operatic works rolled into one.  You'll hear musical references to Otello, La Traviata, Il Trovatore, and others - all with Verdi's tongue placed firmly in his cheek.

There will be six performances:
January 29, 30 at 8pm and 31 at 2pm.
February 5, 6 at 8pm and 7 at 2pm.

Tickets are available through the Grand Theatre website.

La Bohème | UWOpera

This tragic love story is one of the most performed operas in the repertoire and is filled with powerful, beautiful music and real, down-to-earth characters. People say that one should be able to follow what's happening in an opera by what's happening in the music and how it makes you feel. Well, this is one opera where that's really true.  On top of that, UWOpera will have surtitles in English as usual. Chad will sing the role of the fiery painter Marcello.  Find out more about La Bohème here.

The performances will be at the Paul Davenport Theatre at Western University.  Chad's performance dates are Saturday, January 31, and Friday, February 6 at 8pm as well as Sunday, February 8 at 2pm.  

As our show is double-cast, you can see another fine cast perform on January 30 and February 7 at 8pm as well as a matinee on February 1 at 2pm.

Tickets available online through the Grand Theatre Website.

Don Carlo | Vancouver Opera

Chad returns to Vancouver Opera in the role of The Friar in Verdi's Don Carlo. The Friar, coincidentally, bears a striking resemblance to King Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor.

In the war-torn 16th century, peace between France and Spain is secured when a French princess, Elisabeth de Valois, is given in marriage to Spain’s King Philip. The King’s son, Carlo, is shattered, for he is in love with her. When Carlo dares to defend the Flemish people from Philip’s persecution, he incites both his father’s fury and the awesome authority of the Grand Inquisitor. Believing that he has been doubly betrayed, Philip arrests Carlo and Elisabeth. In the dramatic final scene at the tomb of Charles V, a ghostly friar rescues Carlo from the wrath of Church and State.

Spectacular on a grand scale and also extraordinarily intimate, Don Carlo is one of Verdi’s most impressive works. His orchestral colours are brilliant, his choruses are powerful, and his music for the monstrous yet very human king, the terrifying Inquisitor, and the heroic lovers is magnificent.  (taken from the Vancouver Opera website)
