VC is back home after a long weekend in Toronto, having digested 2 Baroque opera performances, not to mention visiting Canada’s largest museum. This post is just a quick update about what’s coming up on the blog later this week.
Here are the receipts for the 2 operas:
The Elgin Theatre in Toronto, home of Opera Atelier and venue for Dido & Aeneas.
The Four Seasons Centre in Toronto, home of the Canadian Opera Company and venue for Ariodante.
As promised in the previous post, I will review both performances on the blog.
I also managed a flying visit to the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM), of which I’m now an out-of-town member.
The protuberant glass structure in the middle distance is the main entrance of the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM ) in Toronto.
The ROM has a significant collection of furniture and other objects from New France, which fits nicely into VC’s period frame. I will dedicate the last post of the week to the museum’s collection of rustic Rococo furniture from old Québec.
Please check back in a day or two for the review of Dido & Aeneas. I loved it, but I do have one quibble. Stay tuned for details!
