City Opera Vancouver — Perruqueries
Jan 26 @ 2:00 pm – 2:30 pm

PERRUQUERIES is a hilarious and deeply-informed look at wigs, and the divos and divas who love and need them. 

Together with many others in the classical community, City Opera performs in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.

You may bring your own wig. If it’s orange, expect certain cultural references.

Canadian Opera Company– Elektra
Jan 26 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm

Elektra feverishly awaits the return of her brother to avenge their father, who was slain years earlier by their mother and her new lover. Driven by an obsessive combination of rage and grief, Elektra feeds her thirst for revenge with primal single-mindedness in this ground breaking work of musical modernism.

For three consecutive seasons, powerhouse soprano Christine Goerke has thrilled COC audiences with her portrayal of Brünnhilde through Wagner’s Ring Cycle operas. She now returns for another defining performance as the hair-raising, unforgettable Elektra.
