Thank you, everyone! We will return in 2024.

Opera Kelowna is delighted to present Opera Under the Stars again in 2023!

Join us in the central courtyard of UBC’s Okanagan campus for an outdoor evening concert featuring professional opera singers cast in Opera Kelowna’s upcoming production of Mozart’s Così fan tutte. Our artists will perform favourite songs from well-known operas, as well as a music of other genres and perhaps a surprise performance or two!

Bring your favourite blanket or festival chairs and settle on the lawn for a glorious evening under the stars.

This concert and event are free to our community. Thank you to our sponsors for making this possible!
