Divas Opera is an all female, Calgary based, operatic vocal duo. Formed in 2019 by soprano Kathleen Morrison and mezzo soprano Barbara King, the Divas bring their elite technical vocal ability, distinct stage flare, and their pure love of singing to experts and newcomers alike. Their commitment to promoting and preserving high quality vocal performance includes the entire range of repertoire from opera to pop. They strive to make what has sometimes been called an “elite art form” more welcoming and relatable. This is achieved by performing in both unexpected and traditional venues, their numerous gown changes, describing what to listen for, why they chose the pieces and personal anecdotes from their respective careers. The audience leaves more confident & less intimidated, with a new understanding and appreciation. Always ones for collaboration, Divas Opera actively seeks opportunities to showcase and build their relationships with other artists. Singing and performing is their passion.
Divas Opera takes to the stage of the Calgary Italian Cultural Centre for 'Bella Italia' an indulgent evening full of all things Italian - music, wine, and food.
The Divas (Kathleen Morrison, soprano & Barbara King, mezzo soprano) will be joined by an all-female powerhouse ensemble to perform everything from opera to pop; in between a delicious 3 course meal by Roma Catering. Longtime
collaborator Mimi Park (piano) and the Bridgeland Quartet (Eva Toncheva, violin/Angela Smart, violin/Andrea Poon, viola/Maria van der Hoek, cello) bring their high level of musicianship throughout the evening.
