Biz break: Boutique agency signs 7 artistsmain
New York-based Stratagem Artists has broken the Febriary ice with a swoop for seven artists, all of the Canadian.
The new artists are: Sopranos Lucia Cesaroni and Aviva Fortunata, mezzo-soprano Reilly Nelson, baritone Phillip Addis, composer Cecilia Livingston, conductor Robert Tweten, and director Aria Umezawa.
The two person agency has also taken on Toronto-based Associate Artist Manager Jenna Simeonov to handle the expansion. Jenna is better known as an arts writer at the Globe & Mail and founder of the Schmopera blog.
This could be a red-letter day for maple-leaf opera.
