Music lovers, listen up. You’re in for a superb treat when you attend Bard’s Opera & Arias concerts – this Monday, August 26 at 2pm and 7:30pm and on September 2 at 2pm and 7:30pm.

The programme theme is Verdi and More! and there’s a special guest joining the UBC Opera Chorus and Vancouver Opera Orchestra members. Simone Osborne, the internationally-acclaimed soprano and UBC opera alumna, will be a featured performer in all four of the concerts. Here she is at a rehearsal in our Mainstage tent, in conversation with Bard Artistic Director Christopher Gaze  – and briefly in glorious song!
