Welcome to City Opera Vancouver
We are a professional chamber opera company. We produce opera dating from the rise of the genre in 1600 through to new opera alive in our own time. We present recitals and concerts that build our brand, widen our audience, and take our music to people where they live. We work in a metro area of 2.4 million people, and in a culture of tremendous creativity.
Chamber Opera: intimate eloquence. Opera in close-up.
So close you can almost touch it.
Our Next Mainstage: 27, 28 and 29 October / the trouble begins at eight
In his early twenties, Mozart started three operas he never completed. Two are Italian comedies, and the third is a German singspiel. Each is a tantalizing hint of what might have been. Each is the voice of Mozart himself.
City Opera offers another Canadian event premiere: three forgotten operas in one evening of wonderful theatre, delightful music, and original exploration. In two acts and two hours, The Lost Operas of Mozart will be presented with English supertitles at Christ Church Cathedral. All seats $45. Tickets on sale after Labour Day 2016.
