City Opera Vancouver is a professional chamber opera company resident in the Downtown Eastside. Our goal is to bring chamber opera to a wide audience, including the Downtown Eastside community. Our repertoire will span four centuries, from chamber opera’s beginnings to contemporary and commissioned works, with a special interest in Canadian music and artists.
Opera is music drama. We will seek outstanding singers whose talent for tragedy and comedy will bring opera’s human stories to life. We will give singers new repertoire to explore and create new opportunities to hear voices that are at their best in an intimate setting. Accessible and innovative, City Opera will offer a unique musical experience to Metro Vancouver audiences.
