OPERA IN THE VILLAGE
AUGUST 10 - 13, 17 - 20
For something entirely different, Calgary Opera’s annual presentation of OPERA
IN THE VILLAGE (page 38) returns this year over the weekends of August 10 to 13 and August 17 and 20 in their “Chautauqua Tent” set up in the East Village. This year’s centerpiece show is Rodgers & Hammerstein’s South Pacific, a Tony Award-winning musical that explores racial prejudice on a Pacific island during World War II. The festival is rounded out with family matinee performances of
Cinderella, a one-act show that is an excellent introduction to opera for firsttimers, and free musical performances throughout the day.
