OPERA IN THE VIL­LAGE

AU­GUST 10 - 13, 17 - 20

Where Calgary - - YOU ARE HERE -

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.
