Artist Mitchell F. Chan curated by opera visionary Alexander Neef
“Mitchell has such a boundless creative mind. I find his machine-like sculptures endlessly fascinating. I call his Don Quixote sculpture the 'Brain of Cervantes' because it allows you to follow the creative process. It's really interactive and allows you to be part of the work.”
OPERA VISIONARY • CANADIAN OPERA COMPANY • PARIS OPERA
In collaboration with the Globe and Mail, Wondereur invited opera visionary Alexander Neef to share the work of an artist that deeply touches him. A serious opera fan turned Casting Director of the Paris Opera by the age of 30, Alexander Neef has taken the Canadian Opera Company to new heights since being appointed as its General Director in 2008. Alexander’s vision of opera as "a voice in space" is driven by a personal passion for the human voice. He has worked in close collaboration with the world's most renowned singers and artists, including Ben Heppner, Sondra Radvanovsky, Robert Wilson and Bill Viola.
