Maritime Concert Opera: LA BOHEME
Jun 21 @ 7:30 pm

We are pleased to welcome the Maritime Concert Opera back to King’s Theatre. MCO is a semi-professional regional opera company based in Lunenburg which brings in-concert performances of great operas to many communities in Nova Scotia. While they use professional soloists, their chorus and ethos are rooted firmly in their communities. A concert opera brings you all the gorgeous singing of complete operatic works, in the original language, without the staging, sets or costumes.

La Bohème opens your soul to emotions too big for words. The music swells with love, soars in ecstasy, crackles with jealousy and cries with heartache…

The composer Giacomo Puccini created the opera La Bohème in 1896, a four-act opera that premiered on February 1, 1896, in Teatro Regio, Turin. The setting of La Bohème takes place in 1830s Paris, France. The opera is based on a collection of related stories by Henri Murger published in 1851 and follows the standard Italian opera format as a very popular performance across the world. The story shows vignettes of bohemian youths who lived in the Latin Quarter of Paris and focuses on relationships, characters, and lovers.

 

Artistic Director Nina Scott-Stoddart is a professional mezzo-soprano who has sung across Canada, the United States and in New Zealand. Founder of Toronto-based Opera Anonymous, she oversaw over 20 productions from 1994 to 2002. Nina and her husband moved to Lunenburg, Nova Scotia in 2002, and has since overseen 18 full operas and a total of 34  concerts with MCO.  In 2005 she and Tara Scott founded the Halifax Summer Opera Workshop which has just completed a very successful tenth season.

Sébastien Chabot | Canada | 2016 | 87 min 
The Gardener is a documentary reflecting on the meaning of gardening and its impact on our lives.


Shortly before his passing at the age of 86, influential gardener and horticulturalist Frank Cabot recounts his personal quest for perfection at Les Quatre Vents, his 20 acres English-style garden and summer estate.
Nestled amongst the rolling hills of the Charlevoix County in Quebec, Les Quatre Vents has become one of the world’s foremost private gardens. Created over three generations, it is an enchanted place of beauty and surprise, a horticultural masterpiece of the 21st century.

Through the words of Cabot and his family, and with the participation of gardening experts and writers, the film looks back at this remarkable man’s personal story and the artistic philosophy that gave birth to one of the greatest gardens in the world. This poetic doc shows the harmonious relationship between people and nature and offers a compelling call for preservation.
Directed and produced by Sébastien Chabot    

 

General Admission at the Door.

$12 ($1 off with Film Buff card).

Doors open at 6pm, film starts at 7pm.

INDIAN HORSE
Jun 28 @ 7:30 pm

Follows the life of Canadian First Nations boy, Saul Indian Horse, as he survives residential school and life amongst the racism of the 1970s. A talented hockey player, Saul must find his own path as he battles sterotypes and alcoholism.

An adaptation of Richard Wagamese’s award-winning novel, this moving and important drama sheds light on the dark history of Canada’s Residential Schools and the indomitable spirit of Indigenous people. INDIAN HORSE stars newcomers Sladen Peltier, Ajuawak Kapashesit and Edna Manitowabi as well as Forrest Goodluck (THE REVENANT), Michael Murphy (AWAY FROM HER), Michael Lawrenchuk (TOKYO COWBOY), Johnny Issaluk (TWO LOVERS AND A BEAR) and Michiel Huisman (THE AGE OF ADELINE).

In late 1950s Ontario, eight-year old Saul Indian Horse is torn from his Ojibway (Anishnaabe) family and committed to one of Canada’s notorious Catholic Residential Schools. In this oppressive environment, Saul is denied the freedom to speak his language or embrace his Indigenous heritage while he witnesses horrendous abuse at the hands of the very people entrusted with his care. Despite this, Saul finds salvation in the unlikeliest of places and favourite Canadian pastime — hockey. Fascinated by the game, he secretly teaches himself to play, developing a unique and rare skill. He seems to see the game in a way no other player can.

His talent leads him away from the misery of the school, eventually to the Pros. But the ghosts of Saul’s past are always present, and threaten to detail his promising career and future. Forced to confront his painful past, Saul draws on the spirit of his ancestors and the understanding of his friends to begin the process of healing.

PAUL O’BRIEN and Band
Jun 30 @ 7:30 pm

Join us at King’s Theatre for the launch of Paul O’Brien’s new CD, recorded in Nova Scotia and produced by JP Cormier.

Paul will be joined by a team of amazing Nova Scotian musicians:

 

  • Jeff Hennessy on piano
  • Ken Shorley on percussion
  • Scott Henderson on pipes and flute
  • Millie O’Brien on vocals

 

 

 

 

 

 

Paul O’Brien is a UK-born singer-songwriter-instrumentalist based in Bridgetown, Nova Scotia, who spends his winters touring Europe. He has a gift for going straight to the emotional heart of the story and taking his listeners with him. The music has a new Celtic feel, songs that are steeped in the acoustic tradition but retain a freshness and relevance, songs that will touch your heart, songs about real people and situations, songs you can remember.

  • “A working class poet with a knack for straightforward language held aloft by a sweet gift of melody.” – Boulevard Magazine
  • ”Paul O’Brien is a modern day poet, a guardian of our history. He knows how to tell us, easily and gracefully stories that are serious, romantic, personal by turns; about love and nature and . . . well, life!”  – Marc Phillip, Magazine Audio
  • “The moment of listening has that feeling of being something special and rare. Paul has a perfect voice for his subjects, strong, warm and able to create a sense of intimacy with his listener. He calls us to action with songs that ring like anthems and makes us cry with reminders of social injustice.” Sheryl McKay, CBC Radio Two

 

O’Brien is a songwriter with deep roots and broad horizons, and he is included in the long tradition of folk/ roots artists everywhere as a teacher of the guitar, mandolin and bodhran, the traditional Irish drum. Since the beginning of his career, his influences have been diverse – everything from new English folk to Reggae. He has developed an eclectic folk style that is broadly appealing and not easily categorized. His experiences as an immigrant, musician, and teacher; his natural instinct for humour and storytelling; and his empathy for the underdog have all combined to produce an insightful and entertaining artist. Paul O’Brien’s concerts are dynamic affairs, and his connection with the audience is palpable. No room is too large or too small for him. In the space of one song, he can take his audiences from foot stomping energy to the absolute stillness of choked-back tears.

STEVEN PAGE w/Kevin Fox
Jul 7 @ 7:30 pm

Congratulations to STEVEN PAGE and former Barenaked Ladies bandmates on being inducted into the CANADIAN MUSIC HALL OF FAME at this year’s Juno Awards.

Steven Page — a founding member of Barenaked Ladies, with whom he toured the globe and sold millions of albums — is a legendary performer. His distinctive and powerful tenor is one of pop music’s most recognizable voices. He’s a towering figure in the world of singer-songwriting, and continues his artistic evolution with a diverse array of solo projects.

Page has composed six Stratford Festival scores, collaborated and toured with Toronto’s innovative Art of Time ensemble, is a member of the Trans-Canada Highway, and has journeyed across North America as host of TV’s The Illegal Eater – all the while continuing to write, release and perform his original music. Steven is currently working on a Stratford-commissioned musical he’s writing with Governor General’s Award-winner Daniel MacIvor. A new album entitled HEAL THYSELF will be out later this year with tours planned in Canada, the U.S. and the U.K. & Ireland.

We’re excited to welcome STEVEN PAGE to Annapolis Royal with fellow musician (and long time friend of King’s Theatre) KEVIN FOX.
