Canadian Opera Company Announces Surplus

Yep. You read correctly. Time to ice the Molson!

The Star reports that the Canadian Opera Company has announced a surplus -- the sixth one in a row! Citing near-100% attendance in its 66 mainstage productions, this news comes just a few weeks after they announced a $2 million gift from an anonymous donor to fund 100 public concerts each year.

It is worth noting the the COC receives a very large government subsidy so to compare this to American opera companies is like comparing apples and oranges. And besides, we're talking Canadian dollars so it is not like it is real money. We're kidding, you know we love you Canada...
