In rehearsal with the COC Ensemble Studio, part IIInterview
The COC Ensemble Studio’s performance of The Barber of Seville happens this coming Friday, May 15th at the Four Seasons Centre. Following up to Part I, I was able to a) invade their rehearsal a little bit, and b) sit down and chat with the rest of this fantastic cast.
We’ve got the barber himself, Clarence Frazer, who also made an unexpected appearance as Figaro in last night’s performance of Barber, stepping in for baritone Joshua Hopkins. The supportive (read: hilarious) characters are Karine Boucher is Berta, Gordon Bintner sing Don Basilio, and the blustering Bartolo is played by Iain MacNeil.
