Toronto Premiers Stravinsky’s Works

“The Nightingale and Other Short Fables” Four Seasons Centre
for the Performing Arts
(October 17–November 5). Fairy tale and puppetry, East and
West: the Canadian Opera Company’s world premiere places short works by Igor Stravinsky in
the hands of the creative, genre-busting director Robert Lepage, who teamed up with the puppeteer
Michael Curry to present a show inspired by traditions of Japan and Vietnam incorporating water
puppets and Bunraku, in addition to shadow puppets and live singers. If you miss it, the show
continues on to the Aix-en-Provence festival next summer.
