Opera in the Village
It's a wrap for yet another successful summer of Opera in the Village! Thank you to everyone who came out to support Canada's only outdoor opera festival, we couldn't have done it without you.
We hope to see you with us at the Jubilee this winter for the remainder of our powerful & exciting season. We look forward to inviting you to return to Opera In The Village in summer 2015!
CANDIDE – MAIN STAGE TENT
The centrepiece of Opera in the Village 2014 is Leonard Bernstein’s comic masterpiece Candide in our 900-seat big top tent. A scandalously funny romp in a festival atmosphere. Click here for more information.

HANSEL & GRETEL – MAIN STAGE TENT
In addition to Candide we will be presenting family matinees of an hour-long adaptation of Hansel & Gretel. The perfect introduction to opera for children aged 5 and up, this show will have the whole family cheering along. Click here for more information.
OUTDOOR ARIAS – SIDE STAGE
An opera-to-go experience on the Side Stage on RiverWalk Plaza. Join us for your favourite opera hits performed by talented alumni of Calgary Opera’s Emerging Artist Program.
THE BIG ROCK PATIO
Feel the breeze, take in the river view and enjoy a cold pint or a refreshing cider before or after the performance. The most fun you can have drinking beer on the Bow... legally. The Big Rock Patio is open when the Festival site is active.
Doesn’t an opera festival make you want to sing? Here’s your chance. Leave your inhibitions at the door and enjoy some freewheeling Karaoke nights in the Big Rock Patio.
So You Think You Can Sing Musical Theatre! – Side Stage
New this year! Singers who prefer Broadway to Bizet take the spotlight in a sing-off for first prize in the Musical Theatre category.
OUTDOOR MOVIE NIGHTS
Unfortunately due to the rainy & cold forecast, our outdoor movie nights have been cancelled. Calgary Opera puts the safety of their guests at the top of their priority list, and we want to ensure all attendees have a pleasant experience.
OPERA CAMP PERFORMANCE – BIG TOP TENT
A mini presentation of Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado performed by the children enrolled in Calgary Opera’s summer opera camp.
