The opera area joins forces with the MacMillan Singers (Hilary Apfelstadt, director) to present Benjamin Britten's Paul Bunyan, based upon the story of the mythical American lumberjack. The operetta, which received its Canadian premiere at the Faculty of Music in 1998, unites a clever libretto by W.H. Auden with a fresh and melodic score by the youthful Benjamin Britten. Michael Patrick Albano directs with choreography by Anna Theodosakis. The production design is by Fred Perruzza and Lisa Magill. Sandra Horst conducts.
