Support our 2022/23 Season.
As we enter our seventh year of operation, BK Opera is preparing a season of intimate productions, shining new light on classics. With your help, we can continue to provide important performance and training opportunities for emerging singers.
All donations of $2 and over are tax deductible through ACF and will contribute to the costs of opera production for our 2017 season.
Our 2022/23 season continues our unique approach with dark and intimate versions of well-known operas.
WERTHER // DECEMBER
In a provincial town, a passionate and idealistic poet falls in love with Charlotte, a dutiful daughter betrothed to another. Werther's idyllic, poetic love, and Charlotte's simple, responsibility-filled life come to head as the two struggle with obsession, depression, jealousy, and love.
Throughout 2023, we will be workshopping and developing new interpretations of two classic operas, DON GIOVANNI and LA VOIX HUMAINE. Don Giovanni will explore ideas of cruelty, violence, and consent. This will be a dark and intense look at one of Mozart's most famous operas. Our production of La Voix Humaine will explore the boundaries, the similarities and the differences between opera and theatre, intertwining the original Cocteau monologue with the Poulenc opera.
BK Opera provides emerging singers with important opportunities to learn stagecraft and develop roles. Throughout the rehearsal periods, we hold workshops designed to help our singers work on character development, as well as continual coaching to help them learn the skills required to make it as a professional opera singer. With your support, we can continue to give young singers these opportunities at no cost to them. Most of our performers are students or recently graduated and need to work to support themselves. We work around their schedules to make sure they don’t need to compromise their living conditions to pursue their dreams.
All donations of $2 and over are tax deductible through ACF and will contribute to the costs of opera production for our 2022/23 season. These costs include costuming, rehearsal costs and paying our talented pianists and creative team. Your donation also helps to keep our ticket prices low, to help make opera accessible to everyone.
