Introducing OperAtlantic

A new professional opera company comprised of passionate local artists based in Kjipuktuk / Halifax

In the early days of summer 2023, a group of friends met over iced tea and cookies. A plan began to hatch: a plan to perform more opera together. A plan to present opera in fun, new, unexpected places and to share our operatic love with anyone who wants to listen.  And as they say, the rest is history!

So here we are - Andrew Pelrine, Tara Scott, Suzanne Rigden, John David Bogardus - we are OperAtlantic!

We are brimming with big operatic ideas, new possibilities for stories to tell, artists to feature, and venues to explore.

To the Vocal artists, we can't wait to collaborate with you. Opera fans, we can't wait to perform for you.  And Opera newbies, we can't wait to call you friends.
