Vancouver Opera Festival 2018



From April 27 to May 6, 2018, under the banner of the Russian White Nights, the second annual Vancouver Opera Festival celebrates Russian composers with a Russian classic opera, a much anticipated opera premiere, a series of instrumental and vocal chamber music concerts, and much more.

Operas
Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin is Russian lyric opera at its finest—an emotional tale packed with breathtaking music, choreography, lavish orchestrations, and stunning arias tell the timeless story of the ill-fated love of Tatiana and Eugene. This new co-production with Calgary Opera is directed by Canadian Stage Director, Tom Diamond with set and projections designed by Scott Reid, and lighting by Harry Frehner.

Twenty years after the play took the theatre world by storm, The Overcoat — a musical tailoring is a symphony of comedy and tragedy boasting a joyously transporting score. Gogol's 19th century tale of a lowly office worker whose life is turned upside down when he's robbed of his new overcoat, has been re-fashioned by award-winning composer James Rolfe, celebrated Canadian theatre innovator Morris Panych and the original creative team.

The Festival will also include a production of Requiem for a Lost Girl: A Chamber Musical about Homelessness. Written and directed by Onalea Gilbertson, with music by Marcel Bergmann, Requiem for a Lost Girl explores themes of poverty, mental illness and addiction, this strikingly original chamber musical unfolds as a memorial service for a young woman. Requiem was created and is performed in partnership with The Kettle Society and SFU Woodwards.

Chamber Music
A series of chamber ensemble and chamber orchestra concerts comprised of both instrumental and vocal chamber music, and showcasing the talents of our very own Vancouver Opera Orchestra musicians, the young artists in our Yulanda M Faris Young Artists Program and invited guests, will take place. Called the Russian Composer Portrait Series, these concerts will feature the works of Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, and Prokofiev.

Vancouver Opera has partnered with Vancouver Early Music to present a concert featuring Karina Gauvin, one of the world’s reigning sopranos in Baroque and Classical repertoire. Alexander Weimann conducts the Pacific Baroque Orchestra in a programme of virtuosic opera arias from 18th century St. Petersburg at the Chan Centre on May 6.

Mix and Mingle
Two special evenings are organized for patrons of Vancouver Opera. The “White Nights Gala” on April 27 features the artists of Eugene Onegin and on May 1 a special concert programme “From Russia with Love” celebrating Jonathan Darlington and the Vancouver Opera Orchestra. Pre-theatre dinner offers and a vodka bar are in the planning as well. The very popular Opera Bar will reappear, as well as other opportunities to mix and mingle. 

Stay tuned for further Festival announcements!
