Watch what happens when Tapestry Opera and members of F--ed Up collaborate
Tap:Ex series finds hardcore punks and opera singers working together
And for Metallurgy,on now at Tapestry's performance space in the Distillery District, opera's teaming up with a strange bedfellow: punk. (Well, maybe not so strange if you're a Nina Hagen aficionado, but still.) As part of Tapestry's Tap:Ex series, renowned singers Krisztina Szabó and David Pomeroy join Mike Haliechuk and Jonah Falco from Polaris Music Prize-winning punk band F--ked Up as well as celebrated pianist Jordan de Souza and others in a mash-up that documents the passion and tragedy of a relationship.
CBC Arts got in on the beginning of the collaboration, and met up again with the Metallurgy team for one of their last rehearsals — the air was heavy with anticipation and a little bit of anxiety.
