JAKOBIN by Dvorak
GENERAL SEATING FOR:

CANADIAN PREMIERE OF DVORAK'S JAKOBIN SET FOR OCTOBER 24, 2014.

The Canadian Institute for Czech Music, in collaboration with Opera by Request, will present the Canadian premiere of Dvorak's semi-comic opera Jakobin on Friday, October 24, 2014, 7:30 pm, at Trinity St. Paul's Church, 427 Bloor St. West, Toronto.  The opera will be semi-staged and will be accompanied by chamber orchestra.  

This project, partially funded by the Ontario Arts Council, includes the participation of the University of Toronto Scarborough Concert Choir, Lenard Whiting, director; and Music Moves Kids, Erin Armstrong, director.  William Shookhoff is music director and conductor.

Cast is as follows:
Benda, the village music teacher......Lenard Whiting, tenor
Terinka, his daughter.............Danielle Dudycha, soprano
Jiri, Terinka's beloved.................Ryan Harper, tenor
Filip, the Burgrave, in love with Terinka...John Holland, bass-baritone
Count Vilem.........................Andrew Tees, baritone
Bohus, Count Vilem's exiled son: Michael Robert-Broder, baritone
Julie, Bohus's wife...............Michele Cusson, soprano
Adolf, the Count's nephew:Domenico Sanfilippo, bass-bairone
Lotinka, the Count's housekeeper:Jenny Cohen, mezzo-soprano

This opera, which is extremely popular in the Czech Republic, and has been performed frequently in England and other European centres, is virtually unknown in North America, even though it was extremely well-received at its premiere and is generally regarded as Dvorak's finest operatic work alongside his Rusalka.

As 2014 has been officially designated as The Year of Czech Music, it is fitting that the opera should receive its Canadian premiere at this time.
