EMV Finishes 2017-18 Season with Canadian Soprano Karina Gauvin in Programme of Virtuosic Opera Aria

Chan Centre for the Performing Arts06 May '18 @ 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
  • EMV Finishes 2017-18 Season with Canadian Soprano Karina Gauvin in Programme of Virtuosic Opera Aria
Early Music Vancouver (EMV), in collaboration with the Vancouver Opera and the Pacific Baroque Orchestra (PBO), presents Russian White Nights – Opera Arias from 18th Century St. Petersburg at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts on Sunday, May 6, 2018 at 3pm. Joined by Music Director Alexander Weimann and the PBO, soprano Karina Gauvin performs a unique programme of virtually unknown opera arias from 18th century St. Petersburg, a period when the ruling Czars and Empresses of Russia spent lavishly on transforming the City into a great modern European cultural capital.
 
The arias will be given voice by Canada’s very own superstar soprano in baroque and classical operatic repertoire, Karina Gauvin. She has impressed audiences and critics the world over with her luscious timbre, profound musicality, and wide vocal range. The Globe and Mail calls her “one of the dream sopranos of our time.” A regular collaborator with conductors as diverse as Nagano, Nézet-Séguin, Bichkov, Norrington, Hogwood, Rilling, Labadie, Rousset, Curtis, and Haim, Gauvin is one of the most respected sopranos of her generation.
 
Gauvin will perform alongside the Pacific Baroque Orchestra (PBO) who have expanded to late classical proportions (25 musicians), under the musical direction of its Artistic Director Alexander Weimann. Recognized as one of Canada’s most exciting and innovative ensembles performing “early music for modern ears,” PBO brings the music of the past up to date by performing with cutting-edge style and enthusiasm. 
 
Russian White Nights: Opera Arias from 18th Century St. Petersburg is presented as part of the 2018 Vancouver Opera Festival. Tickets and information available at: earlymusic.bc.ca.
 
The second annual Vancouver Opera Festival is from April 28 – May 6, 2018. Tickets and further information available at: vancouveropera.ca.
