By Kate MacLean
Edmonton Opera’s new artistic director, who is currently working with Opera Lyra on a production, left me with a head-scratcher recently.
I asked Michael Cavanagh if he thought it was sad that we pay people to depict our emotions on stage. He said maybe it was, but that without the arts we could no longer examine ourselves as a people.
The Great Canadian Theatre Company’s artistic director will take a final bow at the end of this season.
