Opera.ca participates in World Opera Forum

In April, Opera.ca Executive Director Christina Loewen led a Canadian delegation of opera company representativesincluding: Cheryl Hickman, Michael Mori, Ian Rye, Evan Hazell, Patrick Corrigan, and Michel Beaulac in the first ever World Opera Forum in Madrid. Hosted by Teatro Real and organized by Opera Europa, OPERA America, and OperaLatinoAmerica, the two-day forum delved into four considerations around opera’s heritage, new works, diversity and advocacy, punctuated by provocations, and various fishbowl conversations.  We were fortunate to be hosted by Canadian Ambassador to Spain, Matthew Levin and is wife Rosalba Imbrogno Levin at a special pre-conference reception at the Official Residence, which also featured a stunning performance by Canadian soprano Suzanne Rigden.
