In 2010, City Opera gave the young tenor Isaiah Bell his professional debut as Madwoman in Britten’s ‘Curlew River’. Ten years later, Isaiah gave the world premiere of a brand-new take on Poulenc’s ‘The Human Voice’, created on video during COVID. In May 2023, we present the Vancouver premiere of his own ‘The Book of My Shames’… and so we close out this year’s FESTIVAL OF CONTEMPORARY with a look ahead…
