Quoolibetby Allan Pu IkerBrampton Lyric Opera and the Rose TheatreNovember 24 at 8pm, Brampton Lyric Opera will present its annualfundraising concert, "An Evening of Opera with Maria Pellegrini. " Pellegrini,who in a career of over four decades has sung with some of thegreatest names in opera, will perform with fu ll orchestra and chorus aprogram of great arias from the operatic repertoire.Brampton Lyric Opera was incorporated in2004 as a not-for-profit charitable corporation,by tenor/entrepreneur, Emilio Fina, whobegan producing concerts ten years ago withthe aim of starting an opera company. Thefirst four full operatic productions were doneunder less than ideal conditions in the spacesavailable in Brampton at the time, the Heritageand the Lester B. Pearson Theatres. "Theground work of becoming known over thenext two years," he told me, "was vital before Emilio Finawe moved into the Rose Theatre." The 2006-07 season, the company'sfirst in the Rose Theatre, in Fina's words," ... helped put us on themap ...." It gives the company" ... everything we need to function properlyand gives the audience the feeling of intimacy that the houses in Europegive." The company's tenancy in the Rose Theatre has been, he says,"harmonious and mutually beneficial."
