Taste of the Operas

Taste of the Operas Dates / Times 2018-02-10 to 2018-04-06 (19:00 to 21:00) Organization Calgary Opera Type Multi Day Community 1315 - 7 Street SWCalgary, ABT2R 1A5 403.262.7286 Everyone loves a behind-the-scenes experience — be it film, the theatre or opera. Perhaps opera has a particular allure because it combines high production values, extravagant music, and grand visuals. As a way of engaging you in this special world, Calgary Opera offers a fun and informative evening prior to the opening of each mainstage production. Taste of the Opera is exactly that, a 'taste' of each of the upcoming shows — a panel discussion with some of the opera's key cast and/or creative team, a short performance and a Q&A period. The evening culminates with a taste of food and drink from the region in which the featured opera takes place. Tickets are $30.00 Tickets are discounted if you purchase a subscription for all three Tastes!
