The reviews are in! The Overcoat – a musical tailoring is a hit! Vancouver performances start soon.
The Overcoat – a musical tailoring premiered in Toronto last week and the reviews are glowing. Don’t miss the Overcoat when it opens the Vancouver Opera Festival on April 28, then runs until May 12.
“This is it, everyone. The Overcoat – a musical tailoring is without question a part of the operatic canon of the 21st century. It has all the moving parts of a show that entertains, and it has that perfect triumvirate – text, music, and production – that will stand up to future generations of critics, the way Mozart’s or Verdi’s work does today.”

“The overall brilliance of this absurd, funny and trenchant 90-minute opera in two acts makes this a must-see for anyone who appreciates good writing, brilliant orchestration and great stagecraft.”

“The Overcoat is undoubtedly a homerun for Tapestry Opera, Vancouver Opera and Canadian Stage. The performances are outstanding, the music is accessible and compelling and the interpretation of the classic story has the perfect blend of fun, fantasy and philosophy. A triumph and a must see.”
