Opera returns to Minoru Chapel Wednesday, Nov. 7 with two concerts presented by City Opera Vancouver.

The chamber opera company will perform its Viva Verdi! program—devoted to the works of Giuseppe Verdi, including pieces from Rigoletto, La Traviata and Aida.

Narrator Tom Durrie will explore highlights of Verdi's artistic career with the help of baritone Willy Miles-Grenzberg, soprano Shadan Saul and tenor Kwangmin Brian Lee.

Shows are at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the chapel, 6540 Gilbert Rd. Tickets are $20 for adults and $18 for students and seniors.

Seating is limited; organizers recommend buying tickets in advance by calling 604-276-4300 (No. 258850 for 2 p.m. show; No. 258851 for 7 p.m. show). Tickets, if available, can also be bought at the door.

The concert is the second of four events in the Minoru Chapel Opera Fall season.

Opera Pro Cantanti will perform a seasonal concert Dec. 5 and Vancouver Concert Opera Society will offer highlights from Die Fledermaus on Jan. 9, 2013.
