ON AIR: The New Classical FM

Canadian Opera Company 2022/2023 Season


The New Classical FM is proud to be the official Media Sponsor of the Canadian Opera Company’s 2022/2023 Season, the company’s first full season of live opera under new General Director Perryn Leech.

The season runs from October 7, 2022 to May 27, 2023 and features fan-favourites, riveting drama, and a brand new COC production of Verdi’s Macbeth with superstar Sondra Radvanovsky!

The 2022/2023 Season will present:

Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman
(October 7-23, 2022)

When a ghostly ship anchors near her town’s harbour, Senta’s fantasies are put to the test in director Christopher Alden’s visually striking production, inspired by classic Expressionist cinema

Bizet’s Carmen
(October 14-November 4, 2022)

A classic COC production transports audiences to a sun-drenched setting of bustling street scenes and outlaw hideaways, with a dramatic climax that crackles with electricity.

Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro
(January 27-Feburary 18, 2023)

Mozart serves up the most luminous and profound music for this subversive story of servants who topple their masters and women who prove wiser than the men around them. Claus Guth’s acclaimed production features the return of COC Ensemble Studio grad Gordon Bintner.

R. Strauss’ Salome
(February 3— February 24, 2023)

Directed by Academy Award-nominated Atom Egoyan, this production stars Ensemble Studio graduate Ambur Braid as Salome

Verdi’s Macbeth
(April 28-May 20, 2023)

This brand-new production from Sir David McVicar, starring COC favourites Quinn Kelsey and Sondra Radvanovsky, is the must-see work of the season.

Puccini’s Tosca
(May 5-May 27, 2023)

Twists and turns abound in this thriller from Giacomo Puccini, the master of emotional storytelling. A simmering, fast-paced classic set to Puccini’s glorious score.

Kye Marshall & Amanda Hale’s Pomegranate
(June 2, 3, and 4, 2023)

Presented at the Canadian Opera Company Theatre; a fateful trip to Pompeii’s ruins ignites the fantasies of smitten teenagers Suzie and Cass. The pair is transported from 1977 to 79 AD, where sexual freedom can be found in the looming shadow of Mount Vesuvius—but not for long. The timeline shifts to 1981 and the Fly by Night, a Toronto lesbian bar, in the aftermath of the infamous Bathhouse Raids.
