In celebration of Canada's 150th birthday, we invite you to get swept up in this true story of bootlegging, murder and an execution in the Crownest Pass during prohibition in the 1920's.
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, Thomas Glenn as McAlpine and Ernesto Ramírez as Steve. Filumena is conducted by Robert Dean with stage direction by Kelly Robinson.
