Opera Atelier Postpones ‘Something Rich & Strange’

By David Salazar

Opera Atelier has announced the postponement of its production of “Something Rich & Strange.”

The company was set to present the work starting on Oct. 28, 2020, at the Koerner Hall at the TELUS Centre for Performance and Learning; this was to be the company’s debut in the venue.

However, ongoing concerns over COVID-19 nixed the plan.

“The important new health directives regarding COVID-19 have necessitated reimagining our New and Reimagined Fall Season but this challenge has once again proven itself to be a creative catalyst for Opera Atelier’s exceptional team,” said the company’s directors in a joint statement.

As such, the opera will now be pre-recorded over the next two weeks with the release of the resulting video set for a later date in 2020. The production will be filmed by videographer Marcel Canzona.

The company promised more details in the coming weeks.
