Vancouver Concert Opera Society performs at Minoru Chapel
The Vancouver Concert Opera Society will present highlights from the beloved operetta, Die Fledermaus, at Minoru Chapel next Wednesday.
Composed by Johann Strauss II, the operetta is set in late 19th century Vienna, where best friends Gabriel Von Eisenstein and Dr. Falke enjoy good humour by playing practical jokes on each other. But when Von Eisenstein abandons Dr. Falke in the middle of the town square dressed as a bat, Dr. Falke swears revenge. Mistaken identities, a revengeful scheme and the test of fidelity are on the line.
Two shows will be presented Wednesday, Jan. 9, at 2 and 7 p.m., as part of the Minoru Chapel Opera series.
Organizers recommend purchasing tickets in advance by calling 604-276-4300 (No. 258857 for 2 p.m., No. 258859 for 7 p.m.), or at the door, if available. Admission is $20 for adults and $18 for students and seniors. Doors are open 30 minutes before showtime.
