Steveston-London hosts Vancouver Opera Saturday
The powerful art of opera singing will be on display in Richmond Saturday when Vancouver Opera stages a show at Steveston-London Secondary School.
“Opera’s Greatest Hits – and More” will feature a selection of opera’s greatest arias and ensembles. Among the works audiences will hear: the sultry “Habanera” from Carmen, Figaro’s famously charming and funny solo from The Barber of Seville and the duet for tenor and baritone from The Pearl Fishers.
The family-friendly concert stars members of the company’s young artists program: soprano Sheila Christie, mezzo-soprano Kristin Hoff, tenor Rocco Rupolo and baritone Aaron Durand.
Vancouver Opera will also present a show at Gateway Theatre March 22. Both shows start at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $20 for adults, and $10 for seniors, students and children under age 18. For the Feb. 15 show, call 604-683-0222 for tickets. For the March 22 show, call the Gateway Box Office at 604-270-1812 or visit gatewaytheatre.com.
