, we are the Turandot Project Collective
. Together we form a group of very talented classical musicians who will be presenting Puccini’s great masterpiece, Turandot
on February 2nd at Trinity Anglican Church in Ottawa at 4:30PM. Our company of artists includes fresh faces to the opera stage and those who have a wealth of experience, each bringing their own remarkable gifts to the project. The score has been adapted by our wonderful musical director, John Kraus. It is a ravishing combination of grandiose brass rounded out with organ and timpani.
At the heart of it, Turandot
is a choral opera that includes some of China’s most beautiful and cherished traditional melodies. We have invited the Chinese Canadian Children's Choir of Canada
to join us in celebrating a part of their musical heritage, as well as members of Ottawa’s choral community to help us create an unforgettable and thrilling experience for everyone involved, audience and participants alike. How you can help:
We are reaching out to you to help us fund this incredible spectacle. As everyone knows mounting an opera is a valuable yet costly venture. Your contribution will go towards covering the cost of the hall rental, the creation of a set worthy of the opera, awe-inspiring costume creation and props. Most importantly, it will go toward paying our incredibly talented artists a reasonable wage. Help us unite our voices in song!
We hope to have our funding in place by January 1st; 2019. You can be instrumental (pun intended) in making this production a huge success and remember any contribution, even in the smallest amount helps and is so appreciated.
