Opera Kelowna and UBC Okanagan are proud to bring back the enchanted evening of opera on campus! This free event brings community together in a festival-like setting outside on the lawn at UBC Okanagan’s campus for a concert featuring members of the Opera’s Valley Opera Summer Intensive Training program, and cast members from our August mainstage production. We are grateful to Pushor Mitchell Ltd. for their generous support of this event.
Seating in the main courtyard is festival format and attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chairs and bring their own picnic and beverages.
Below see program, cast, and info on how to text to donate tonight!
