Brian Deedrick


Brian Deedrick is delighted to be here for the very first time with Opera Kelowna, and equally excited for this first foray into Berlioz’s joyous and wonderful BEATRICE ET BENEDICT. A freelance theatre and opera director, Brian’s hundred-plus productions have taken him back and forth across Canada and the US, with occasional forays as far afield as Italy, Germany and Israel.  It feels like every opera becomes a favourite, but some of the greatest pleasures include a just-finished CONSUL for Opera Nuova; MEFISTOFELE and THE ELIXIR OF LOVE for Knoxville Opera; TOSCA in Rheinsberg, Germany; TURANDOT in Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver; OTELLO for L’Opera de Quebec; FALSTAFF, WEILL IN WEIMAR and FIDELIO for Edmonton Opera; EUGENE ONEGIN for Opera Carolina; LA BOHEME for Manitoba Opera; LAKME in Tel Aviv; and AIDA practically everywhere.  Upcoming, another favourite: DER FLIEGENDE HOLLAENDER for Vancouver Opera.  Having flown directly to Kelowna from Berlin, where he works summers as tour guide (no, really!), Brian leaves immediately following the opening of B&B to return to Berlin, in order to continue his passion for storytelling, albeit in a very different  form than opera, on the streets of the greatest city in the world.
