Vancouver Opera presents the world’s sexiest opera, Carmen, which became the fastest-selling production in Vancouver Opera history when it last took to the Queen Elizabeth Theatre stage five years ago.


This gorgeous production of Carmen, directed by Joel Ivany Joel Ivany Joel Ivany, is set in 1930s-1940s Latin America, complete with the heat, grit and passion of that time and place. Hand-rolled cigars, poncho-clad bandits, even a New York Yankees baseball cap on a street urchin may be seen among the spectacle of more than 60 choristers.

Vancouver Opera’s Carmen will be onstage from Saturday, September 27th until Sunday, October 5th for six performances only. Tickets are available exclusively through the Vancouver Opera Ticket Centre by calling (604) 683-0222 or ordering online.

I love attended Vancouver Opera’s productions. Striking sets, moving performances, sensational music, and a great date night idea or excuse to dress up for a night on the town with friends.

    Last year we were very lucky to taste the 2006 Quatrain. It was lovely with floral, dark fruits and balanced acidity. Could be aged even longer, but we were just so happy to have tasted that before our lunch at the Terrace restaurant.
