Opera Under the Stars
On August 1st, Opera Kelowna is delighted to team with Presenting Sponsor UBC Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies for the annual much-loved Opera Under the Stars! Last year hundreds of people attended this sold-out world-class sunset performance in the central courtyard at UBC's Okanagan campus.

This free open-air public concert presents a number of the professional cast of this season's Main Stage production of George Bizet's Carmen - one of the world's most beloved operas - in an informal and picturesque setting.  Bring a picnic, blankets or chairs and enjoy arias and ensembles from a wide rage of familiar and beautiful operatic repertoire.

Gates open at 7:00 p.m. and the concert begins at 8:30 p.m.  Opera Under the Stars is free to attend and parking for the evening is complimentary - but online pre-registration is required. (Limit of 4 tickets at one time - all names to be captured).  Food and refreshments will be available for purchase.  All ages are welcome and encouraged to mingle, move about and even dance to familiar operatic favourites.

Artistic Director - Alexandra Babbel
Event Chairs:
Bryce Traister, Dean, Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies, UBC Okanagan
Eric Miller, COO, Pushor Mitchell LLP

"Carmen is one of the greatest operas of all time...Carmen has everything you want from an opera:  high drama, passionate characters, a love story.  And what's more it's absolutely packed with great melodies - even if you don't know the opera, you'll definitely know the tunes." - Classic FM
