|Are you an opera chicken?|
"You wouldn't know it to look at them." was my friend's reaction to seeing live opera singers for the first time. I know just what she means. These young, good-looking artists who performed at Berri Metro on Wednesday are not everyone's stereotype of how an opera singer looks. They weren't wearing horns and they didn't break the stage. Montreal Opera regularly put on these 45 minute shows right in the middle of the station and the singers brave station announcements, passing commuters, camera flashes and the occasional dancing homeless person as they perform. If you live in Montreal and want a treat - sign up for the Montreal Opera newsletter and they will email you when Metropera is about to happen. Just don't stand in front of me.
