Opera Under the Stars back at UBC Okanagan

Hundreds of opera lovers enjoy an open-air concert by Opera Kelowna at last summer’s Opera Under the Stars in the central courtyard at UBC Okanagan. This year, Opera Under the Stars takes place Aug. 2, starting at 8:30 p.m.

A mid-summer evening of music promises to captivate concert-goers as the third-annual Opera Under the Stars returns to UBC Okanagan this August.
