KRESGE'S TORONTO (CP) The Canadian Opera Company's 1979 season will highlight a revival of a modern Canadian work, Louis Kiel, which will travel to Ottawa and Washington, it was announced Wednesday. Herman Geiger-Torel, general director of the com- pany, told a news conference that Louis Riel, by Toronto composoer Harry Somers, will be in the limelight next fall when Toronto plays host to the International Music Congress. The opera, based on the life of the French-Canadian rebel whose career in Western Can- ada in the 1880s led to his hanging, was premiered by the company in 1967. The 1975 season in Toronto will feature a tribute to Giac- omo Puccini, with three operas by that com- Madama Butterfly. Manon Lescault and II Tabarrp, a one-act opera that wiH be presented along with I Pagliacci, by Ruggiero Leon- cavallo. Dr. Geiger-Torel announced the signing of one big-name star for the season: Grace Bumbry, the Metropolitan Opera mezzosoprano, who will sing and dance the title role in Salome, by Richard Strauss. Dr. Geiger-Torel said he will direct one new produc- tion, Die Fledermaus, by Johann Strauss, sung in English. The Toronto season will be weeks long with 36 per- formances, but plans are be- ing made for a spring season that would offer lower-priced performances of popular works, he added.

That is the audacious program of Ely Landau creator of American Film Theatre. Idealistic? Possibly: but 'realistic' as far as the product is concerned when the finest actors, directors, playwrights, technical crews are willing to work for minimum salary to offer something of value. Where ugly realism reared its head was in charges that every major theatre circuit was threatened with loss of product from major dis- tributors during any week in which an AFT program was booked. Major objections to AFT was in the loss of Monday and Tuesday grosses by the dis- tributor whose film was bumped and the fear that an interrupted run would effect grossing momentum. Well any exhibitor would just as soon forget the first two days of the week as it concerns the box office, so its not only good news that AFT will debut in Lethbridge in February, but there is some courage evinced in that the local house will feature the program Thursday afternoons and evenings. The first season of AFT had other problems in the area of ticket fulfillment and data- processing but to quote Lan- dau again: "The success that The American Film Theatre has had with the launching of its first season serves as living proof that great theatrical works, transposed to the screen with artistry and integrity, are a welcome addi- tion to the national cultural scene." What it also offers is an evening on the town where the opportunity to go out once a month, to get a bit dressed up and take family and friends somewhere is too infrequent. So now, at most reasonable subscription (and wouldn't this make a dandy Christmas you can anticipate Topol in Brecht's Galileao, Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris, Alan Bates in David In Celebration, Maximilian Schell in The Man in the Glass Booth and Glenda Jackson in The Maids. Special subscription prices are in effect for the matinee performances for senior citizens and students and ac- cording to Bob Shackleford a Friday morning matinee could be arranged for high- school students at a very low price if there is interest. Go to work drama teachers, that one morning a month could be the enrichment you've struggled for with your students. Wednesday last was a "dud" night on television until CBC's Musicamera surfaced with a delightful hour of the music of Victor Herbert The typical titling of this show is a bit off-putting but if you caught this week's edition you got an entertainment bonus Where American television offers too often the likes of Tony Orlando and Dawn, Canadian TV can and does give us the relaxing pleasures of last season's Paul Horn Show, The Irish Rovers and Ryan's Fancy and Music To See.

Richard Burton who has found himself in hot water with his off-screen comments on Churchill, evidencing a considerable Tonypandy syn- drome, offered a telling interpretation of the war leader. Just as splendid was Virginia McKenna an actress of rare delicacy as Clemen- tine Churchill. But the greatest fascination was to be found in the attendant political characters. Actors went beyond what might have been merely the skill of make- up to give telling flashes of Attlee, Amery, Chamberlain, Baldwin, Lloyd George, King George and King Edward Anticipated treat for the television week ahead is Arthur Miller's After The Fall with Faye Dunaway and Christopher Plummer Miller's favorite theme is responsibility and one of his outstanding qualities is his in- stinct for conflict and his ability to dramatize it in scenes of confrontation The production should whet the appetite for more Miller, specifically the Playgoer production of The Crucible to be presented next spring and directed by Dr Terry Theodore of the U of L drama department. Finally, the long-running The Longest Yard has provid- ed a surprising number of re- quests for the names of the ac- tors who made up The Mean Machine. So for the record: Caretaker, Reynolds team manager who was eventually killed by the stoolie Unger (Charles Tyner) was played by Jim Hampton. Scarboro, the coaching assistant was Michael Conrad.
