There is no substitute for the real thing – watching an opera live. Canadian Opera Company’s season opener “The Nightingale and Other Short Fables” directed by Robert Lepage and conducted by Jonathan Darlington is certainly a production for which this holds even more true. The huge joint effort put up by the orchestra, the singers, dancers, designers, puppeteers, and technicians cannot be easily captured by any medium. For at least a small impression especially of the musical side of the story, Radio Canada will air a live recording of the “Nightingale” on Dec. 5th at 1pm.
