After performing together in well over 10 different operas, concerts, recitals, and charity endeavours over the past 5 years; Soprano Kathleen Morrison and Mezzo Soprano Barbara King joined forces to bring their distinct flair, love, and artistry of opera to the public. Sharing the same vision of making opera and popular music appealing and approachable for both expert and new comers alike, the two Divas have created a series of concerts that bring some of the most popular and loved duets and arias to stage. Through their relaxed approach to describing the music, personal performance anecdotes, maintaining an extremely high level of vocal technique, captivating the audience with their numerous costume changes and infectious stage presence; the Divas have breathed new life into the opera scene in Canada. It's impossible not to be taken in by the pure love these Divas have for opera and their joy of performing together!
Divas Opera is bringing the joy, togetherness and Christmas spirit back to Calgary with their concert, ‘A Divas Opera Christmas’. Presented by Rise Up! Weekends, with support from the Calgary Arts Development and the City of Calgary, the Divas will be singing all of their favourite Christmas Carols, including all of the online gifts they gave to Calgary virtually in 2020. The evening will have all of the gowns, quick costumes changes, and high quality music that Divas Opera is known for, while also creating a wonderful sense of Christmas spirit! Joined by Carlos Foggin on piano and the Rocky Mountain Trombones, the evening will be one not to be missed. Even Santa Claus has promised to stop by the concert during his busy holiday season!
Knowing how difficult the pandemic has affected our community, Divas Opera has committed to give proceeds from every ticket sold to the Calgary Emergency Women’s Shelter and to also provide and ask our audience to bring a non-perishable food donation to support the Calgary Food Bank. No one should go without during the Christmas season and this is our way of giving back.
Come and join us for the event of the Christmas season of 2021!!!
