For experienced Calgarians, the idea that this city is a bastion of cultural delights is no real surprise. While the residents of Cow Town certainly revel in the yearly stampede, many also enjoy other forms of culture and entertainment as well.
One such cultural extravaganza will be taking place starting this fall at the Calgary Opera for the 2011/12 season. The opera company is celebrating its 40th season this year with something old and new for opera fans to enjoy.
The Calgary Opera is one of the most successful opera companies in Canada and includes mostly North American performers in their productions.
The mainstage performances that you can see this season are:
- Nov. 12, 16 & 18: Pagliacci & Gianni Schicchi
- Jan. 28, Feb. 1 & 3: Moby
