The normally staid city of Toronto was thrust into the limelight in February 1915 when Carrie Davies, an 18-year-old British maid, shot and killed Charles Bert Massey in defense against his sexual advances. Public opinion was wildly divided at the time as the Masseys were one of the most powerful families in Canada. U of T Opera joins forces with the Faculty’s student composers and the Women’s Chamber Choir to present the premiere of this extraordinary drama based upon real events. The opera will be sung in English with costume design by Lisa Magill and lighting devised by Wesley McKenzie. Michael Patrick Albano directs and Sandra Horst conducts.
