Svadba, Montreal Opera

Suzanne Rigden played the role of Danica in this six woman cast in the a capella opera SVADBA by Anna Sokolovic. 
Natasha Gauthier for Opera Canada wrote:  Opéra de Montréal’s Svadba “provokes maximum aesthetic pleasure”
"...how much more thrilling must it be to be able to put this on your YA resume, rather than yet another Barbiere or Nozze?"
 
"The five supporting women—sopranos Suzanne Rigden and Chelsea Rus, and mezzos Rose Naggar-Tremblay, Caroline Gélinas, and Rachèle Tremblay—all deserve huge props for their excellent work in bringing Sokolovic’s difficult, unusual score to life. They achieved beautiful, clean-edged blend, while each bringing a distinct vocal flavour and personality to the fore when required. They are all natural, charming actors as well—there wasn’t one weak link in the group."
