After Paris attacks, Toronto's Opera Atelier opens defiantly
So... is it art imitating life or the other way around?
The majority of performers for two Toronto artistic companies - Opera Atelier and Tafelmusik - were booked to fly to Paris this past weekend for a much-anticipated several days on-stage at the historic Palace of Versailles.
They have been here in rehearsals this week and will be performing, Lully's Armide.
Marshall Pynkoski is the co-artistic director of Opera Atelier. He met Anna Maria at a cafe across from Versailles.
Opera Atelier and Toronto's Tafelmusik perform at the Chateau de Versailles beginning Friday.
