There's nothing particularly operatic about Broken Social Scene's music, right? Indie kids don't normally dig people wailing in contralto and falsetto, right?
Broken Social Scene will play the Canadian Opera Company's annual fundraiser on Oct. 29 at Toronto's Four Seasons Centre For The Performing Arts.
Kevin Drew and company will reportedly "give opera standards a twist" at the party, according to the Canadian Press. The shindig will celebrate Gioachino Rossini's La Cenerentola (Cinderella in Italian), which opens at the Four Seasons on April 23. Of course, will raise money for the Canadian Opera Company.
But if you want to get in, it ain't going to be cheap. Tickets are $150 a pop. Keep in mind this is the opera, so you'll also probably need to wear some slick suit along with your Converse All Stars.
