As you may remember, a couple of weeks ago I attended the Carli and Julie Kennedy concert at the Evergreen Cultural Centre. We have also attended other performances such as Driving Miss Daisy and Boeing, Boeing at the Evergreen.
We love the Evergreen Cultural Centre because it brings “big city-like” performances out of the city to the ‘burbs for all of us who want to see great performances but do not want to be bothered with driving into Vancouver and engaging in the sometimes-contact sport of finding a parking spot.
So, it is pretty exciting to see DragonDiva Operatic Theatre returning to the Evergreen for an all-new Opera at the Lake presentation.
The Marriage of Figaro will be set as if it were one of the Arabian Nights’ 1001 Tales. Make that 1002. The tale follows a single day of madness – the very day that Figaro and Susanna are to be married in “Silvassa”, a small town in India. Quick-paced and fun, The Marriage of Figaro will charm opera aficionados and newcomers alike.
Sung in Italian with English surtitles. And perhaps the best part for a foodie like me, all tickets ($25 each) include complimentary coffee and dessert.
The DragonDiva performances will be on the Evergreen stage August 22 and 23 at 8pm with a matinee performance on August 24th at 2pm. You can visit the Evergreen Cultural Centre’s website to purchase tickets.
