Our town, Edmonton, June 21

Attended a performance of the opera Our Town by Ned Rorem based on the Thornton Wilder play. Performance was put on by Opera Nuova, with young performers from around Canada. It was played at the reconstructed Capitol Theater at Fort Edmonton Park -- a somewhat Disneyfied version of Edmonton history. The opera was well done -- the story is bleak but compelling.
