Canadian Opera Company Student Dress Rehearsals – RSVP by this Monday June 20

Dear Parents and Choristers –

With apologies to those who have already received this, we got feedback that some on the list never got it, so we are re-sending with new deadline for responses – MONDAY JUNE 20.

Currently only 7 students have expressed an interest. We need at least 10 to proceed. Please see details below and RSVP by reply email if your child would like to attend.

If we have enough to proceed I will contact those who responded with payment details early next week.

Many thanks!

Mary Bella

Dear Parents and Choristers,
We are very pleased to be able to offer our senior choristers and alumni an amazing opportunity to attend two Student Dress rehearsals next season at the Canadian Opera Company.
Our own conductor, Jennifer Robinson, will be performing in the chorus of both shows!

  • Puccini’s Tosca – Thursday April 27, 2017 @ 7:30pm
  • Running time: These are full length performances of the operas, with intermissions – they typically run 3 – 3.5 hours, so finish around 11pm. We will give you a more exact pick up time closer to the performances.

Reserving your tickets:
  • If your child is interested in attending, please reply to this email before Friday June 20 and let us know:
