A preview of The Barber of Seville, from the COC Ensemble StudioInterview
Yesterday in the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre, the COC Ensemble Studio gave us a preview of The Barber of Seville, in anticipation of their mainstage performance on May 15th. I was so glad I brought my camera; it was a completely fun concert of highlights from Rossini’s infamous opera, and it made me pretty excited to see the Ensemble Studio on the big stage.
Here’s a quick look from yesterday’s preview, featuring Clarence Frazer (Figaro), Andrew Haji (Almaviva), Jean-Philippe Fortier-Lazure (Almaviva), Charlotte Burrage (Rosina), Iain MacNeil (Bartolo), Karine Boucher (Berta), and Jennifer Szeto at the piano.
