No better way to spend your evening than with a beer and some opera, art song and more. We promise you won’t get shh’d here!
Actor/Singer Danie Friesen’s experience on the performance stage ranges from Shakespeare to Mozart to Woody Allen. A graduate of the Randolph Academy for Performing Arts, Friesen works as an actor and producer for Art & Lies Productions, an independent theatre company she co-founded in 2010. Selected credits include: No Exit (Theatre Passe Muraille), In Adagio (Winnipeg Art Gallery), Killing Game (Annex Theatre), Antony and Cleopatra (Buddies in Bad Times), Smile (Bathurst Theatre), Much Ado About Nothing (Young People’s Theatre), Strike! (Theatre in the Park), The Mikado and The Gondoliers (Pantages Playhouse). Friesen will appear in Cavalli’s La Calisto in Sulmona, Italy this summer as a part of COSI’s Opera Ensemble.
Merging her experience in theatre with her artistry as a soprano, Friesen endeavours to interpret art songs and arias through the eyes of an actor, presenting poetry and music through fully formed, poignant characters.
Breaking past theatre curtains, Opera Revue will sing you to worlds closer than you think! So get yourself a beer and kick back for a night of music!
