--------------------------------------

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 2.5 million people, and in a culture of tremendous creativity.

Chamber Opera: intimate eloquence. Opera in close-up.  

So close you can almost touch it.

Missing tells a story everybody knows, about a woman no one remembers. Set both in Vancouver and along the Highway of Tears, this is strong and essential drama. Its libretto is by the distinguished First Nations playwright Marie Clements, and its music by the Juno-award winning Brian Current. Our stage director is Peter Hinton. Missing is co-produced by City Opera Vancouver and Pacific Opera Victoria.

 
For 2018, a tour is now being planned along The Highway of Tears, from Prince Rupert to Prince George. Thereafter, a national tour is being proposed.

Missing was made possible by an extraordinary creation grant of $127,000 from The Vancouver Foundation. We are profoundly grateful for the Foundation's confidence, faith, and vision.

We are similarly grateful to the City of Vancouver for year-round funding, and special funding for our Families-Only premiere; to the BC Arts Council for generous interim, project, and year-round funding; to Vancity Credit Union for a highly significant award; to Accent Inns for artist accommodation; to Telus Communications for a generous gift;  to the Paul and Edwina Heller Memorial Fund for another major investment in City Opera; to The Leon Judah Blackmore Foundation for a major award for this new music drama; and, to the Canada Council / New Chapter programme for an exceptional investment in our co-production.
