Manitoba Opera 2015/16 Annual Report
Manitoba Opera is at the centre of the arts in Manitoba. Opera blends together theatre, dance, music, drama, and song into a single art form that paints life’s victories and defeats so vividly, we see ourselves in the stories told. With the beauty of the human voice and the rich palette of orchestral colours, opera portrays compelling insights into the things we share as humans. To paraphrase Picasso, “Opera washes away from the soul, the dust of everyday life.”
Manitoba Opera also creates rich experiences for our children with its education programs. Through its partnerships with other organizations and its audience engagement activities, MO connects the themes of the operas to the variety of communities we serve.
