  • Vancouver Opera announces 2018—2019 season & 3rd annual Vancouver Opera Festival
Vancouver Opera announces their 2018—2019 season consisting of a full year of adventurous and breathtaking opera, and the 3rd annual Vancouver Opera Festival, 9 days of opera, special events, speakers, family events, and more from April 27 to May 5, 2019.
 
The 2018—2019 season will open with a wonderfully lavish Art Nouveau operetta, Franz Lehár’s The Merry Widow (October 20—28, 2018, Queen Elizabeth Theatre), followed by a gloriously extravagant production of one of opera’s most enduring love stories, Giacomo Puccini’s La Bohème (February 14—24, 2019, Queen Elizabeth Theatre). In the spring, VO will kick off the 2019 Vancouver Opera Festival “Fairytales & Fables” with a devilishly exciting production of Charles Gounod’s Faust (April 27-May 5, 2019, Queen Elizabeth Theatre), and an enduring rags-to-riches story that never goes out of style in Gioachino Rossini’s La Cenerentola (April 27—May 12, 2019, Vancouver Playhouse).
 
Subscriptions for the 2018—2019 season will be available beginning April 2, 2018. Current subscribers can lock in their reserved seats for the upcoming season from now until March 29, 2018 by calling into the VO Ticket Centre at 604 683 0222 or online at vancouveropera.ca. Single tickets will be available beginning July 16, 2018.
