Against the Grain Theatre

Against the Grain Theatre

This innovative company has to be an all time favourite of mine!

In May 2013 I attended their production of Figaro’s Wedding. Superb cast; Superb music direction by Christopher Mokrzewski; and a brilliant text – libretto by Artistic Director/Stage Director/Creative: Joel Ivany.

For me this company really brings opera to the people and they certainly succeeded in bringing people to opera with sold out shows for Figaro’s Wedding.

Now get ready folks, and all in Toronto for an “XRATED” Messiah; and to this I say, in the immortal words of Leonard Cohen, (and Handel too!): “Hallelujah”.
