Speaker for our September 26, 2017 General Meeting: Dean Burry, Artistic Director - Canadian Children's Opera Company
“Opera For Young People - Serious Fun!”
Toronto-based composer and educator Dean Burry discusses the joys (and pitfalls) of creating opera with and for children.
Dean Burry joined the Canadian Children’s Opera Company as Artistic Director following two decades of dedication to children’s opera in Canada. He has been a key player in the Education and Outreach Department of the Canadian Opera Company since designing the celebrated After-School Opera Program in 1997. Working as Program Leader, Music and Stage Director he has created over fifty operas with young people in various Toronto communities. Burry has written twelve nationally and internationally-performed theatrical works for young people, including The Hobbit, The Secret World of Og, The Scorpions’ Sting, The Bremen Town Musicians, Le Nez de la Sorcière, The Vinland Traveler, Angela and Her Sisters, Pandora’s Locker and The Sword in the Schoolyard. His opera The Brothers Grimm, commissioned by the Canadian Opera Company’s in 1999, has been presented over 600 times and is considered “the most performed Canadian opera in history.”
