What people are saying
“Thank you for clearly creating an environment in which all the singers were able to grow in their own time and on their own vocal/dramatic schedule and thank you for presenting a production of such deep thought and musical style.”
” The Halifax Summer Opera Festival is sort of magical. It’s an excellent place to work on your first role, or to try something that you’ve always wanted to do! The productions are creative and full of ideas. The rehearsal process allows for performers to experiment dramatically and musically in a safe and fun environment: No matter where you are along your path, you are respected and appreciated for what you can contribute to the production. Thank you!” — Nicholas Borg
