Isis and Osiris
Wednesday March 31, 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
ISIS AND OSIRIS, a new Canadian opera, will have its first public performance in Walker Court on March 31. A work of beautiful poetry and glorious music by librettist Sharon Singer and composer Colin Mack, Isis and Osiris is based on the major myth of ancient Egypt. The first great love story in the canon, Isis and Osiris is the larger-than-life tale of sibling jealousy, lust for power, fratricide and the quest for immortality. The artistic vision of this presentation will make ancient Egypt and its mysteries vividly come to life through the dramatic expression of this passionate story of the ancient gods. The opera is being directed by Guillermo Silva-Marin and co-produced by Ariaworks and Opera in Concert.
