The Rapport is an Ottawa-based opera company aimed at bringing opera to the masses. We take out the recitatives, add in English scripts, shell out some wine, and have a ball-all the while maintaining high musical standards and musical integrity. We are committed to engaging and enriching performances, while maintaining the musical integrity of the masterpieces we are adapting. We also believe that opera should be accessible to everyone, including both audience and performers. We aim to create a safe and inspiring work environment for young artists to explore the world of opera and develop their artistic and creative talents.
From Mozart to Verdi, we are forging a new path for both seasoned and novice opera goers. Or, as we like to see it, we are building a rapport between opera and the 21st century.
