Opera Kelowna 2017 | 18 Season

Carmencita

May 26, 2018 at 5:30pm
The Innovation Centre | 460 Doyle Avenue | Kelowna BC

Opera Kelowna’s Annual Gala is one of Kelowna’s most eagerly awaited fundraising benefits each season. Join us for Carmencita and help make possible this year’s MainStage Production of Carmen. The themes of Carmen – both age-old and modern will weave together in a not-to-be missed arts and cultural experience. Taking it to the street – in true nomadic style guests will join a spectacular Latin street parade in downtown Kelowna and arrive in style at the Okanagan Innovation Centre. Enjoy Vancouver’s Toque Flamenco Ensemble, a Steam Punk couture fashion show, nationally recognized artists creating original ‘street’ artwork for the production staging, fine Quail’s Gate wine and tapas style dining from Kelowna’s about to be unveiled Italian dining experience Gather.  VIP tickets include a pre-reception on the roof top.
