Vancouver Opera has announced its 2021/22 season, which will include three live performances at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre.
“The entire team at Vancouver Opera is thrilled to be staging these productions this coming season,” says VO general director Tom Wright in a press release. “Two company premieres and a classic that highlights our amazing orchestra, chorus, and celebrated Canadian vocal talent.”
The season will open in December with the Vancouver Opera premiere of Christoph Willibald Gluck's Orfeo Ed Euridice, in collaboration with Ne. Sans Opera and the Dance Centre (December 4 and 5).
February will see two performances of Pietro Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana in Concert, with music director emeritus Jonathan Darlington conducting the Vancouver Opera Orchestra and Chorus (February 12 and 13).
The final production of the season is Gilbert and Sullivan's wildly popular comic opera, HMS Pinafore (April 30 and May 5, 7, and 8).
Vancouver Opera will also present two days of outdoor performances at the šxʷƛ̓exən Xwtl’a7shn (formerly QET Plaza) this month, on September 18 and 19, from 1 to 4 pm.
