U of Toronto Opera @ Campbell House

Brilliant! A bio-libretto by Michael Patrick Albano which opens doors to scenes each set by a different U of T composition student, in the venue that was the very home of the opera’s characters.  The opera, Footsteps in Campbell House is about, for and in Campbell House (built in 1822), the home Upper Canada Chief Justice Sir William Campbell and his wife Hannah. The audience members (maximum allowable size – 38) travel from room to room to experience each period scenario. The whole event lasts under an hour! The compositions and performances are enthralling, comic, poignant and entertaining. This is yet another exciting realization of our new opera generation at the University of Toronto. Brilliant!
