Win a pair of tickets to Tapestry Briefs: Booster Shots on November 16th at Ernest Balmer Studio!
TAPESTRY presents TAPESTRY BRIEFS: BOOSTER SHOTS, ten original, provocative opera shorts brought to life in site-specific installations in-and-around the Distillery Historic District, for four performances only, November 13-16, 2014.
Launching Tapestry’s 35th anniversary season, TAPESTRY BRIEFS: BOOSTER SHOTS is HBO-style opera ripped from the headlines of contemporary life. With a language and style that is both familiar and surprising, Canada’s most vital music and theatre artists have created BOOSTER SHOTS. The development of a Canadian classical canon through TAPESTRY BRIEFS is only one part of Tapestry’s commitment to refreshing the relevancy, and redefining the future, of opera.
Each night begins in the Ernest Balmer Studio, Tapestry’s studio and bar in the Distillery Historic District, a restored pedestrian-only village that blends Victorian Industrial architecture and stunning 21st century design. The crawl continues with subsequent scenes animating other Distillery spaces–from freight elevators and brick lined halls, to intimate corners and public galleries.Select locations will be paired with “booster shots” of flavour stimulants, ranging from craft beer and sake to artisanal ice cream, for this “new tastes” opera crawl.
