Joyce El-Khoury: the modern face of opera (via the Globe and Mail)

Big feature on Joyce El-Khoury in The Globe and Mail with the headline “Canadian Opera Company’s Joyce El-Khoury: the modern face of opera”.
Here’s a quote:

“”It’s always interesting to explore culture in opera,” she says. “The more we use these creative brushes to paint stories through these alternate lenses, the more possibilities there are for engaging storytelling – especially in a cultural mosaic like #Canada.””

In addition to her work at COC (Eugene Onegin runs until Nov 3), she will perform a recital as part of the Festival du Monde Arabe de Montréal (co-presented by Opéra de Montréal) on November 1!
