Tables Turned

Toronto’s contemporary opera favourites, Tapestry Opera bring back Nicole Lizée’s experimental gem described by Noisey as, “the weirdest and best show ever.”

ALL PERFORMANCES FOR THIS SHOW HAVE ENDED

This is not 19th century opera. Tables Turned was originally presented as part of Tapestry Opera’s experimental Tap:Ex series, a vehicle for exploring modes through which opera might undergo a 21st century rebirth.
From opera singers in kimonos to Sound of Music trip hop covers, Tap:EX Tables Turned is the weirdest and best show ever
— Noisey (VICE)
Vocal maven Carla Huhtanen, soprano, and genre-bending contemporary percussionist Ben Reimer join forces with Montreal composer, turntable artist and electronics specialist Nicole Lizée (Bondarsphere in  Life Reflected, Luminato 2017) for the boundary-breaking, multi-media concert Tables Turned. Lizée’s signature destabilization of classic film and video recordings are projected alongside the performers, whose turntables and vocals fight and fuse in live duet. Tables Turned reconfigures iconic moments in film and opera, blurring lines between the real and re-imagined in a captivating display of electronic and vocal virtuosity.

“And that’s what makes Tapestry Opera and Tap:EX Tables Turned great, because they give a glimpse as to what opera can offer us in our multimedia savvy world, and what we’re missing out when we ignored it.”
