Enjoy a truly Okanagan experience of nature and beauty as we kick off the Summer Opera Series and the UBC Centennial celebrations in style with Opera Under the Stars!
The Okanagan is fast becoming the summer destination for Art lovers. Imagine a bit of Mozart cascading across the lawn under the evening sky while you enjoy a glass of wine and delicious food with your friends.
Opera Kelowna will present a charming program of Arias, Duets, and Chorus favourites for those who love Opera or those who want to get to know Opera. Enjoy the escape to the beautiful surroundings and beautiful concert on the green. Some of Canada’s best talent will gather on UBC’s Okanagan campus for what will be a most memorable evening of music. The performance will include the beloved and familiar “Flower Duet,” “O Mio Babbino Caro,” “The Pearl Fisher’s Duet” and numerous chorus favourites. Our professionally contracted cast will perform excerpts from “The Marriage of Figaro” which will be presented later in the Summer Opera Series. Dr. Kinza Tyrrell, Vancouver Opera’s top vocal coach, will accompany our singers and Scottish conductor Bernard McDonald will bring his point of view. The beautiful young women of CANDESCA will sing in ensemble.
Design your special evening with friends by choosing one of our special seating options. Bring your best picnic wares or blanket and indulge in your favourite arias under the stars for free or order your dining package ahead of time and we’ll have your picnic basket and wine waiting for you.
