Classic Arts News   Edmonton Opera's 2005-06 Season Features Work With Local Setting
 
The Edmonton Opera's 2005-06 season will include Filumena, an opera set in Alberta in the early 20th century, the company announced.

Filumena, by composer John Estacio and playwright John Murrell, debuted at Calgary Opera in 2003. Produced in celebration of Alberta's centennial, it tells the story of Filumena Lassandro, who was executed after a bootlegging scheme resulted in the death of a local constable. She was the last woman hanged in the province.

The company will also revive Canadian director Robert LePage's acclaimed production of the double bill of Bart‹k's Bluebeard's Castle and Schoenberg's Erwartung, which debuted at the Canadian Opera Company in the 1990s. Puccini's La bohme completes the season.
