"We still have people talking about the event...every city or town big or small, should have this magical experience."

Shauna Quinn, Downtown Calgary



104 Underground

“The vision of bringing people into the city centre   for serious fun. Mercury isn’t content with taking opera to the streets, the parks, and the river. Now, it wants to take opera underground. Even if you’re a relative opera newbie.....a fun time. It’s about the most populist introduction to opera you could find. And did I mention the wine? And the food? And the trains? This little opera company makes me so happy – I love their urban guerrilla attitude, their cheeky efforts to take opera to the masses."

Pagliacci

“What a wonderful production it was! With a great cast, it was extremely memorable, even the orchestra was excellent. We loved it and still tell people about it! We had the shirts with us on our trip to Spain and Rome in Oct, so you are now global!!

We would attend any performance you present, you definitely have a great vision we feel so honored to have found your production company and we have been to La Scala, The Met and Teatro Real and Coney Island is right up there for us!! Actually, the production was better than what we saw and heard in Spain!”

"Brilliant! A must see show!"

"My wife saw the article in the Globe and Mail...we decided to attend a performance of the opera...has you right in the action and greatly enhances your enjoyment in a way that a normal production cannot.  It was even superior to the HD live broadcasts the MET has been doing the last couple of years. The quality of the singing was a pleasant surprise, and the acting was great.  Our guests who are not opera fans, were extremely taken with the performance.  Any reservations they might have had were quickly dispersed. Many kudos to Mercury Opera.

"WOW! We were caught up in the wave and became a part of the show.  Sitting on the front benches does have its perks and dangers.  We were blown away!"

“My wife and I attended Il Tabarro last evening. What a wonderful experience! I sit on the Board of Edmonton Opera and we travel the world for opera, but seldom have we enjoyed a production more. The perfect opera for such a setting, with the boat, the skyline, and the opera.”
