UBC Opera Ensemble Gala

UBC Opera Ensemble Gala

SEP 21, 2017/ 7PM

The Westin Wall Centre, Richmond Airport Hotel

The UBC Opera Ensemble was founded in 1995, with the appointment of Canadian lyric coloratura Nancy Hermiston as Chair of the Voice and Opera Divisions. Beginning with a core of seven performers, Ms. Hermiston has built the program to a 90-member company, now performing three main productions at UBC every season, six Opera Tea Concerts, and several engagements with local community partners, including Vancouver Opera, Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Bard on the Beach, and Vancouver Bach Choir.

To celebrate the beginning of the 2017–2018 opera season we offer you an Opera Gala at The Westin Wall Centre, Richmond Airport Hotel, with baritone James Westman and tenor Michael Colvin. The UBC Opera Ensemble will join these two international stars for an evening of operatic favourites from La Bohème, The Pearl Fishers, Carmen, and many more of the opera classics we all know and love. Exquisite music, beautiful singing, and excellent cuisine will await our guests. All proceeds from this gala will go to support the UBC Opera Ensemble.

Tickets $250 per person. Complimentary Valet Parking.

A $185 tax receipt will be issued for a portion of the ticket price in accordance with CRA guidelines.
