City Opera Vancouver—Berlin

    January 24, 2020 @ 8:00 pm America/Toronto Timezone
    Performance Works
    Granville Island

    Twilight in the Twenties

    Members of a cabaret troupe gather one last time to perform for their friends, some of whom have already gone missing. It is 1934 in Berlin. The Weimar Republic has collapsed, and the world is turning upside down.

    This is the premise of City Opera’s next MainStage. It is unlike anything we have done before, and it speaks directly to our own times. Using music authentic to the period, it will be presented in a cabaret setting at Performance Works on Granville Island. BERLIN runs 23, 24, and 25 January 2020, all at 8pm and a newly added 2pm matinee.

    Our objective is to present music from the Weimar era, cross-connected in a new narrative. Weimar was a period of tremendous experiment and daring, risk and transgression, gender liberation, discovery and allure – especially in Berlin. We bring it to life again.

    All tickets $44.50. Cabaret seating.
