Event Details
Essential Opera opens its 4th season with Haydn’s L’isola disabitata, or The Deserted Island – a little-known comedic gem in two short acts. This charming four-character score will be sung in Italian (with on-screen English translation); music direction by Kate Carver.
All the action in L’isola disabitata takes place on a tiny deserted island – well, deserted except for Costanza (Erin Bardua), abandoned here 13 years ago by her faithless fiancé, and her younger sister Sylvia (Maureen Batt), who has grown into a lovely young woman. Soon, the scenic but rather dull locale gets crowded with the arrival of Enrico (Giovanni Spanu), a handsome young man who’s thrilled to meet Sylvia, and his best friend (Stefan Fehr)… none other than Gernando, the fiancé whose years of searching are finally over. Of course, resolving 13 years of misunderstanding isn’t as simple as all that – or is it?
Event Hosted By
Essential Opera
Essential Opera was founded in Toronto, ON, Canada by sopranos Erin Bardua and Maureen Batt, to give audiences and singers a chance to experience opera at its most essential. Following a successful February 2011 debut production of Le nozze di Figaro (inarguably one of the most essential operas), we're making exciting plans for future seasons.

We'll continue to bring together talented and passionate professional and emerging singers, expert music direction, and beautiful venues. We'll keep production costs (in other words, ticket prices) down by presenting these amazing works in concert. It's just the essentials: brilliant music, a libretto that's dramatic - or touching - or funny - or all three, and a great group of performers.
