Canadian Opera Company,
This is a still photo from a performance of 'Die Walkure' by Wagner. Canadian Opera Company world premiere of the Ring Cycle in Toronto. Here the Valkyries carry the heroic fallen to Valhalla.
Wow, I bet that was a really fun evening out!! Lovely shot!
Just a note: this is a photo taken by Michael Cooper during a dress rehearsal. Not by me during a performance. That is never recommended! No picture taking during live performances.
Great shot and wonderful night out! Happy WW! Mine is up too!
Wagner is amazing.Happy WW
How long did the performance last? And how many runs were there?
Great photo. Happy WW
Zam, here's a link to the Ring Cycle info for the Canadian Opera Company. There's a wonderful gallery of photos from each of the four operas. They debuted from Sept. 12 - Oct. 1, 2006 in Toronto. They were historic performances, as the entire Ring Cycle had never been staged before in Canada by a Canadian company.
I had the pleasure of seeing them as they were slowly debuted (before the actual full Ring Cycle in the new house) and they were absolutely amazing in so many ways.
I love that photo of Measha Brueggergosman what a gorgeous woman!
