    TORONTO, March 5 /CNW/ - After a cross-country search for the next opera
star, the ultimate "Bathroom Diva" will be revealed in the season finale of
Bathroom Divas: So You Want To Be An Opera Star?, an exciting six-part,
one-hour documentary series produced by Kaleidoscope Entertainment for Bravo!.
The season finale airs Saturday, March 17 at 9pm ET on Bravo!, with an encore
presentation Tuesday, March 20 at 8pm ET.
    From auditions in Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto, Montreal and Halifax, six
finalists were hand-picked to participate in an intensive opera boot camp in
Toronto. In the final episode three opera hopefuls remain: Paul Abelha, a
construction worker from Hamilton, Ontario; Elaine Jean Brown, a part-time
model/administrative assistant from Calgary, Alberta; and Phillip Holmes, a
student from Norway Bay, Quebec. After weeks of training with Mary Lou Fallis
(soprano professor/comedienne), Tom Diamond (opera director/drama coach),
Daniel Lichti (bass-baritone/professor) and Liz Upchurch (pianist/vocal
coach), only one of the protégés will ultimately win the top prize - a debut
performance at the Orpheum Theatre with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra led
by esteemed conductor Bramwell Tovey in front of an audience of thousands.
