Blood Orchid: How Women Feel - cancelled

Presented by: Barbara Lewis

Saturday June 15, 2019 at 8pm

The performance by Barbara Lewis has been cancelled in anticipation of noise levels which may adversely impact the intimate, quiet nature of the show. The Ottawa River flood has required the relocation of the Carivibe carnival to Shenkman Arts Centre on that date, from its usual home on Petrie Island.

Ticket holders will be fully reimbursed.


Montreal, Mexico – and now Ottawa!

(Ladies, give your man an early Father’s Day gift you can enjoy together!)

This unique, deeply personal showcase of song has most recently been performed to rapt, sold-out audiences in Montreal and Mexico. This is the only scheduled appearance in Ontario!

In Blood Orchid, Barbara re-awakens and stirs the senses. Her audiences luxuriate in the memories she brings alive; the Blood of passion and the beauty of the Orchid are combined in song to tell the emotional journey of women in our lifetime.

Barbara’s voice, like the orchid, is rare and exquisite – easily one of Canada’s finest. In Blood Orchid, you’ll experience the magical union of her powerful, wide-ranging vocal abilities, with the personal connection that has forever endeared her to her fans.

In creating Blood Orchid, Barbara painstakingly searched for and assembled, for the first time, a group of popular classics that, together, reveal women’s deepest feelings and emotions. It is an uplifting tribute to women, in all states of being - the glorious and the downcast – truly, “How Women Feel.”

From Joni Mitchell’s “A Case of You” to Helen Reddy’s “I Am Woman” - from “La Vie en Rose” (Edith Piaf) to Peggy Lee’s anthem, “Fever,” you’ll thrill to the music of generations, intimately interpreted as never before.

An exceptional performer not to be missed!

“Wow! Commanding performance by Barbara Lewis. Enthusiastic crowd in awe of tremendous range.”
