Congratulations to Lydia Perović on the publication of Incidental Music! A chapter of Incidental Music appeared in Steel Bananas Quarterly last year in our translation issue, prior to being picked up by feminist press Inanna Publications. The launch will be hosted by TINARS at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto on November 27th, 2012.
The evening will feature performances by seasoned concert and opera soprano Erin Bardua, whose singing highlights include Vancouver Opera (Macbeth) and Pamina (Die Zauberflöte) with Arcady Baroque Ensemble and Handel’s Alcina with Essential Opera, and mezzo Margaret Bardos, whose contemporary and classical repertoire includes R. Murray Schafer’s The Children’s Crusade, Karl Jenkins’ Stabat Mater, Rossini’s Petite Messe and Vivaldi’s Gloria. She will perform an idiosyncratic history of the mezzo-with-soprano involving different composers and eras. They will be accompanied by accomplished Toronto pianist, Christina M. Faye.
Enjoy the opera, and a special reading by Lydia in the second act of this special event!
