With more than 45 years of community arts involvement, the Edmonton Opera brings Mozart's classic score to the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium. In this clever reimagining of comic opera The Abduction from the Seraglio —now set in the early 1960s—a sophisticated secret agent undertakes a dangerous mission to rescue the love of his life, a fellow secret agent. The evening air fills with German vocals (complemented by English subtitles) and seductive, action-packed music, inspiring a roaring good time and post-show impersonations of the finest James Bond, Timothy Dalton.
Yelpers give the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium a five-star average:
- If you have never experienced a play of a concert at the Jubliee, I definitely recommend going for something. It's always a great time and a memorable experience. – Nicole B.
- If I find out an act I like is going to perform at the Jubilee, I definitely find that an incentive to buy a ticket because I know it is going to sound great. – Paula K.
Producing two to five main-stage operas per season is enough to keep any company busy, but Edmonton Opera goes beyond to enthral new and experienced operagoers alike. The company has brought scores of scores to life since its 1963 inception, priding itself on being the oldest year-round opera company in the Prairie Provinces. With the help of ambitious, press-lauded performers, directors, and designers, as well as projected surtitles when necessary, audiences navigate the medium's lorgnette-combusting dramas and lush soundscapes. Insider knowledge abounds at Opera Talks, Opera 101 panels, and in the company's own Intermezzo magazine for those seeking a deeper understanding of the medium or for curious newcomers wishing to sing forlornly about a burned pot roast.
