A mid-summer evening of music captivated an estimated 700 concert-goers last night during the third-annual Opera Under the Stars at UBC Okanagan.
Set in UBC Okanagan's central courtyard, the free open-air public concert featured world-class performances from Opera Kelowna in an informal and picturesque setting.
The event opened Opera Kelowna’s 2017 Summer Concert Series, which continues with three additional Opera in the Park concerts:
- Aug. 3 at Kelowna’s Guisachan Park
- Aug. 4 at West Kelowna’s Memorial Park Amphitheatre
- Aug. 6 at Peachland’s Heritage Park
These concerts give audiences a taste of Opera Kelowna’s mainstage performance of La bohème at the Kelowna Community Theatre on Aug. 18 and 19 at 7:30 p.m.
