Burning Questions with Chris Barillaro & Jonathan Patterson

All the answers you never knew you wanted to know!
Opera McGill's 2020-2021 Lisl Wirth Unboxed Festival presentation of Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella is led by two of Montreal's finest music theatre artists, Jonathan Patterson and Chris Barillaro.  

Jonathan directs and choreographs the production, while musical direction is done by Chris, who also plays piano for the show. We had a lot of fun putting the dynamic duo in the spotlight and asking some burning questions about everything from fairy godmothers to dream collaborations!

You can read more from Jonathan in our article, Inside the Lisl Wirth Festival, where he shares some thoughts about this production.
