Fall 2020 in our strange new world

Hello all Calgary Opera Volunteers,

I wish I could have the opportunity to see and talk to you each in person about how you are doing, how your loved ones are, how you’ve been holding up in these unprecedented times and dealing with the economic, social and mental aspects of society during this pandemic.  It has turned everything upside down and we are still very much feeling the effects of the measures put in place in Canada and across the world.

As many of you likely know, we have postponed our 2020-21 Mainstage productions until the 2021-22 season.  All three grand operas we were preparing to present have been moved forward by one year, as well as our Christmas at the Opera production.  We are re-imagining a season filled with more intimate and exciting pieces both virtual and in-person.

We are very much looking forward to continuing our Emerging Artist Program in this 2020-21 season, as well as our Education and Community Engagement programs in addition to our season’s offerings.  Information on all of these performances and programs can be found on our website at www.calgaryopera.com.

Should there be an opportunity to volunteer throughout the course of this season, you will find the opportunity here.

Looking forward to seeing you all again. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.

Keep taking care of yourselves and each other,

Patricia Kesler
