Interview with Mezzo Soprano Rihab Chaieb – ‘Inez’ in the COC’s ‘Il Trovatore’

28 Sep

Opera lovers take note: The COC launches their 2012/2013 season with an enduring and tuneful favourite, Verdi’s Il Trovatore. The opera, which opens tomorrow night, features a remarkable all-star line up including Ramón Vargas, Elza van den Heever, Elena Manistina, and Russell Braun. Also joining them is rising talent and member of the Canadian Opera Company’s Ensemble Studio program, mezzo soprano Rihab Chaieb. We had a chance to sit down with Rihab and chat with her about her role in Il Trovatore, as well as her experiences as a young performer, and her unusual foray into the art.

For tickets and more information about their production of Il Trovatore, head over to the COC website.
