Last November I was a guest of the Vancouver Opera for their season-opening performance of Eugine Onegin. I hadn’t been to the opera in over ten years and the experience was lovely. Since that time, the Vancouver Opera and I have been brewing up something very special (thanks to a suggestion from Tris) and our ideas and initiatives have come to fruition with Blogger Night at Carmen.

French opéra comique by Georges Bizet, Carmen

On Tuesday, January 27th, I will be joined by a group of top-notch bloggers at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre: Best of 604 Awards nominees, Kimli, Tanya and Ami from Beyond Robson.

We’ll be setup to live blog before the curtain goes up and during the intermissions, sharing our thoughts, opinions, photos and videos. I’m excited to see this legendary masterpiece and look forward to spotting OperaGal up on stage. Stay tuned next week to share our evening, and visit the Vancouver Opera site if for more information.
