Why See Opera Atelier - Pygmalion?
The Operatic Rendition of Pygmalion
Classic romance Pygmalion tells the beautiful story of a sculptor who falls in love with one of his statues and wishes for her to come to life. The fantastic play written by George Bernard Shaw premiered in 1913 in Vienna, and now 103 years later comes to the Elgin Theatre in Toronto courtesy of Opera Atelier.
Taken from ancient Greek mythology, the story of Pygmalion is one that has captivated generation after generation and seen many re-works and revivals. The great French composers Charpentier and Rameau take this wonderful story and transform it into an amazing piece of opera with the assistance of Canadian tenor Colin Ainsworth. The musical interpretation of this powerful, ancient tale is a goose-bump inducing experience not to be missed!
