Opera Under The Stars in Kelowna

Performance at UBCO kicks the first of four outdoor performances.

A mid-summer evening of music captivated an estimated 700 concert-goers Wednesday night during the third-annual Opera Under the Stars at UBC Okanagan campus.

Set in UBCO’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 will 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 will give audiences a taste of Opera Kelowna’s mainstage performance of La bohème at the Kelowna Community Theatre scheduled for Aug. 18 and 19. Both of those performances start at 7:30 p.m.
