On the Joys of a Broken Foot
by Étienne Dupuis
And then I saw, through social media and our common friends, the evolution of this beautiful company! Bohème was a success, as was AtG's take on Le nozze di Figaro (which was, by the way, nominated for 7 Dora Awards!). Critics all seemed to agree that it was about time we had people put up this beautiful art form, unconventionally but respectfully, in strange but carefully chosen venues, with committed artists all around. The opera next door, if you will! So I was glad for AtG, which is giving a new life to classical music and finding new ways to make it entertaining for people of all ages and tastes. You may not like everything about it, but it keeps you on your toes -- something that is extremely rare to find in the big opera houses today. So, when I was offered a role in a production of Pelléas et Mélisande (in French!!), how could I say no? I jumped at the chance.
