Opera Under the Stars 2024

June 27 at 8:00 pm - 9:15 pm

Opera performance on stage in front of an audience

Join us at UBC’s Okanagan campus for an outdoor evening concert, hosted by Opera Kelowna, featuring a quartet of professional opera singers. 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.

New location for 202: the Commons Field

Bring your favourite blanket or festival chairs and settle on the lawn for a glorious evening under the stars. Guests are welcome to bring their own picnic and refreshments, but no outside alcohol is permitted on site.

Co-presented by UBC Okanagan’s Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies and Pushor Mitchell Lawyers.
