Last night, audiences would have gathered in the anticipation of the opening night of Another Brick in the Wall: The Opera, the centrepiece performance of the Vancouver Opera Festival, presented by BMO.
Vancouver Opera was forced to cancel this season’s performances due to the need to maintain physical distancing in the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. They wanted to take the opportunity to acknowledge its ticket buyers, subscribers, donors and sponsors, such as BMO, Blakes, and The Haebler Group for their support of Vancouver Opera. To celebrate, Vancouver Opera created a virtual opening night by assembling a reel of highlights from the production to enjoy at home. The video is a reminder of the lush productions that we’ve come to expect from Vancouver Opera and what we can look forward to when theatres reopen again.
