Führerbunker Makes Piece With Shocking Delusion


Bradley Christensen, Matthew Cairns, Johnathan MacArthur and David Roth.

The COSIConnection’s latest world stage premiere,  Andrew Ager’s Führerbunker, has boldly stood up to the downfall of a tyrant. “Performances are strong across the board led by an extraordinary portrayal of Hitler by tenor Jonathan MacArthur. ” (Opera Ramblings) On Stage Door, Christopher Hoile posted, “I’m glad that the COSI  Connection production (Centre for Opera Studies in Italy) had the courage to stage this world premiere.”

Kelsey Taylor, Sydney Baedke, and Stephanie Kallay.

Spreading its roots in Canada, the COSI Connection empowers its COSI alumni and others with  “Extraordinary Opera Training!” With a series of opera premieres, operas in concert, and Opera @ Home performances, its singers are building their careers and their confidence.
