Opera Under the Stars 2023

August 3, 2023 at 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

A highlight summer event returns this August as Opera Kelowna, in a special partnership with UBC Okanagan, presents Opera Under the Stars.

Join us on August 3 in the central courtyard of UBC’s Okanagan campus for an outdoor evening concert featuring professional opera singers cast in Opera Kelowna’s upcoming production of Mozart’s Così fan tutte. Our artists will perform favourite songs from well-known operas, as well as a music of other genres and perhaps a surprise performance or two!

Thank you to performance sponsor Pushor Mitchell.

Bring your favourite blanket or festival chairs and settle on the lawn for a glorious evening under the stars.

Registration is required and opens July 5. Mark your calendars and book early for this sell-out event.
