PRODUCERS’ 3 in 1

Dean Artists and Pacific Opera Victoria are partnering in a new initiative to promote the vocal arts in Canada and beyond.

Presenters from Canada and the USA have been invited to Victoria to see the Canadian Premiere of Flight by Dove/de Angelis, hear singers in audition over two days and have informal discussions on topics of mutual interest. 

Over 20 of Canada’s most important singers will be heard by representatives of six presenters from the opera and orchestral world.

Dean Artists Management and Pacific Opera Victoria are grateful for ongoing support from the Canada Council for the Arts.
