Her Name Is Carmen

Go Rinat Go!

The extraordinarily gifted Rinat Shaham stepped into the role of Carmen at the Canadian Opera Company (after American mezzo-soprano Beth Clayton withdrew due to health reasons) and made an indelible mark on Toronto opera-goers, as written up in The Globe and Mail.

Was there any doubt?! Of course not.

Shaham who played Carmen in VO's production last season wowed and powed both Vancouver audiences and critics. There is a reason that she is known as the world's definitive Carmen.

Congrats from everyone here at VO for a wonderful opening!
