In celebration of Canada's 150th birthday, we invite you to get swept up in this true Alberta story of unexpected love and its tragic consequences. CMC Associate Composer John Estacio and playwright John Murrell give us the story of Filumena, an Italian immigrant in a loveless marriage, who finds passion in a forbidden affair. When faced with a lie, she finds truth in herself.

Filumena, a Calgary Opera new work (originally co-commissioned and produced with The Banff Centre), had its world premiere in 2003. It opened to rave reviews, and is now the most produced Canadian grand opera in history.

The production stars Lida Szkwarek as Filumena, Gregory Dahl as Emilio Picariello, Elizabeth Turnbull as Maria Picariello, Andrew Love as Charlie Losandro and Thomas Glenn as McAlpine. Filumena is conducted by R Dean with stage direction by Kelly Robinson.
