Acclaimed opera director at Canstage helm

As of this month Canstage has a new full time artistic director, Matthew Jocelyn (he's been transitioning to the job since March). What's the news? He's perhaps best known as an opera director. Canstage, Canada's largest non-profit theatre company, has brought him in to bring both new vision and an ability to raise money to the group. What does this mean for singers in Toronto? We don't know yet but at worst it means another director with some serious opera cred in the city. At best it means more opportunities for works that incorporate vocal music at Canstage. Either way, we win!
