The inner life of a young boy is at the heart of this moving and meaningful new opera by world-renowned spoken-word artist Shane Koyczan and composer Neil Weisensel. Bravely autobiographical, beautifully poetic, visually innovative and musically memorable, Stickboy confronts the uncomfortable reality of a society struggling with its own fear and insecurity, a society that seeks conformity and uniformity at the expense of those who are different.This visually stunning world premiere will feature animation by Giant Ant, the producers of Mr. Koyczan's monumentally popular video "To This Day", with set design by Drew Facey.

In high society Vancouver – call it “Viennacouver” – every night is party night! Lighthearted, romantic, and wickedly funny, Die Fledermaus has the power to lift our spirits.

Winner of countless awards, Sweeney Todd is darkly comical and endlessly entertaining. The indelible cast of characters and the evocatively grimy setting combine with Sondheim’s unmatchable lyrics and complex orchestral score for a rich theatrical and musical experience

Starring real-life husband and wife Greer Grimsley, one of the great bass-baritones of his generation, as Sweeney Todd, and acclaimed mezzo-soprano Luretta Bybee as Mrs. Lovett. Canadian soprano Andriana Chuchman, fresh from a bravura debut performance at The Metropolitan Opera (where she stepped in for Anna Netrebko for two performances of L'Elisir d'Amore) will sing Johanna.
