The Bicycle Opera Project is a group of young professional artists dedicated to bringing high-quality, accessible opera to communities across Nova Scotia… traveling exclusively by bicycle!
Through our passion for representing contemporary Canadian music, we aim to give the age-old art form a new spin, by introducing audiences to a wealth of fabulous contemporary operatic works. In keeping with our mission to make opera accessible, we perform only in English, in intimate and unique venues, with a variety of dramatic content relevant to todays audiences. We use the bicycle to present a car-free alternative to touring and to break down the perception around opera.
“It’s tough to imagine an opera singer wiping off sweat and bicycle grease before walking on stage, but a new company is all about defying the opera clichés” – CBC NEWS
