TASTING NOTES: “Full-bodied and harmonious. Well-structured and stylish, featuring rich colours with sparkling accents. Astonishing artistry with a beguiling beginning and a flavourful finish.”
Gabriel Charpentier’s chamber opera A Tea Symphony, or, The Perils of Clara – a Kitsch Opera in 9 Drinks tells the saga of a Scotch-soaked soprano who longed to play the cello, but whose evil mother forced her into flute lessons. Performing salon music in a grand hotel, Clara recounts her musical misadventures and colourful love life — while consuming 9 glasses of brandy!
”Heather Pawsey … kicked up her heels and launched herself full-tilt into A Tea Symphony. With impressive skill, and effortless technique, she brought the whole thing off in a tour-de-force of song and send-up.” (Halifax Chronicle Herald).
Also on tap: Merry music and scintillating surprises to delight your palate!
Matinee: 2:30 p.m.; Evening show: 7:30 p.m.
