From the misty Hills of Lammermuir to sun-drenched Seville

If you are a Vancouverite, hopefully you were fortunate enough to catch Vancouver Opera's recent production of Lucia di Lammermoor. And if you did catch the show, you are likely still reveling in arguably one of Vancouver Opera's best productions in a long time for every night was met with a standing ovation and exuberant "bravi" that made those of us on the stage wonder if the curtain would ever come down!

For four of our Carmen cast members it was an honour to share the stage with Lucia's stellar talent including Eglise Gutierrez (Lucia), Michael Fabiano (Edgardo), Gregory Dahl (Enrico), and Burak Bilgili (Raimondo).

The picture below was taken on the stage at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on closing night of Lucia... from left to right... Jeremy Grffin (Men's Chorus), John Arsenault (Normanno), Jeanine Fynn (Women's Chorus) & Natalie Burdeny (Women's Chorus).

Now that the curtain has fallen on Lucia, it's time for VanCOCO's quotient to close the score on Donizetti and raise a glass of sangria to Carmen! Vivat, vivat le Toréro... see you in January!
