Faust Canadians @ the MET

This week at the MET sees FOUR Canadians on stage. First is Stratford Artistic Director Des McAnuff (he of the super Jesus Christ Superstar headed to Broadway) who created this co-production of Gounod's Faust.  The second is conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the third is mezzo Michèle Losier who has been burning up the stages of the world.  The NY Times writes:

The mezzo-soprano Michèle Losier brought a rich voice and impishness to the pants role of Siébel, Faust’s student, who loves Marguerite.

And of course, the MET stage wouldn't be complete without our own Russell Braun...that being said, it would seem that one of Quebec's greatest exports aside from hydroelectricity are their opera singers....  Read the full review here and check out pictures here.
