(CP) The 1973 Guelph Spring Festival has opened with a power house of Canadian opera talent in Gian- Carlo Menotti's moving music drama The Consul, which will be repeated Tuesday and Thursday nights. English opera star Milla An- drew drew sustained applause Sunday for her intense por- trayal of Magda Sorel, the woman who seeks a visa from HOLIDAIRES ony Association Presents John Passion lay 7th, Yafes Centre p.m. The Leihbridge Symphony Ckorus Accompanied by The Lethbridge Symphony Orchestra (String Section) and HARPSICHORD Soloists: Colleen Kaufmann Walter Mary Thompson {Contralto) Courtesy of the University of Lethbridge Played by Miss Louise Chapman Arthur Hunt Arnold Dvorkin of i Directed by LUCIEN NEEDHAM the consul to escape from ter- rorism in some unidentified country behind the Iron Curtain and finally kills herself in des- pair. The production, staged by Herman Geiger-Torel, general director of the Canadian Opera Company, Toronto, employed members of the Hamilton PM- harmonic Orchestra under Nicholas Goldschmidt, director of music at the University of Guelph and artistic director of the festival. Run on a budget of about the festival runs 17 days with music ranging from Bach to world premieres of two new works by Guelph com- posers Charles M. Wilson and Derek Healey. NO THEME "CHOSEN Unlike Shakespeare at Strat- ford, Ont.. or George Bernard Shaw at Niagara-on-t h e-Lake, Ont., the Guelph festival pro- gram has no consistant theme, but caters primarily to music lovers seeking quality perform- ance of new or unusual works. The Italian born American Menctti composed The Consul in 1950, but it has not gained the box-office popularity of The Telephone composed in 1947 or Amahl and the Night Visitors, 1957. Supporting Miss Andrew in this performance were a string of top names in Canadian op- Rideout as the old mother, Allan Monk as John So- rel sought by the secret police, and Judith Forest as the con- sul's secretary, who never lets anyone get into his office to plead for a visa. The con- sul never appears on stage. Jan Ruebf and Phil Stark also plays colorful roles. Some of the festival's events are staged in local churches, suited for the kind of music per- formed. But for the opera, the festival had to use a high school auditorium where the acoustics as in all such brick and cement halls tended to be brittle. NEW THEATRE Festival officials said they hope to have a proper theatre in a new civic centre here by 1977, the 150th anniversary of the founding of Guelph. The an- nual festival is sponsored by the Edward Johnson Music Founda- tion, created in memory of the late general manager of the New York Metropolitan Opera, who was born here. The 1973 festival opened Sat- urday night with a performance by the festival Singers of Can- ada under Elmer Eisler, with The Canadian Brass. An international film festival for children and performances by the Julliard String Quartet, the Quebec Symphony, Metro- politan Opera star Martina Ar- royo, Algonquin Indian sing- er Alanis Obomsawin, Monique Leyrac, The Jest Society, Eu- gene Istomin, Issac Stern and Leaonard Rose are included in this year's festival.
