By David Salazar

Canadian company Lyrico is set to present “A Very Operatic Christmas” on Dec. 5, 2021.

The showcase, the company’s first in Montréal, will feature tenors Marco Bocchicchio and Sam Champagne, as they perform alongside baritone Matthew Adam. The FILMharmonique Orchestra and Choir will be conducted by Francis Choinière.

Audiences will hear music from “La Traviata,” “Cavalleria Rusticana,” “The Nutcracker,” as well as notable holiday tunes.

“After so much time spent apart during the pandemic, we hope that our music will bring people together in celebration of the spirit of the holidays,” Champagne told OperaWire.

The performance will be produced by Minuit Médias in Association with GFN Productions, an entertainment company that produces film, classical, and pop concerts.
