Win a Phantom of the Opera Date Nightby
Vancouver Bach Choir, currently celebrating its 85th anniversary season, presents Downing’s Phantom of the Opera at the Orpheum this February.
Where: The Orpheum (601 Smithe St, Vancouver)
When: Saturday, February 20, 2016 at 8:00pm
Tickets: Starting at $29, available online now
This version of Phantom of the Opera is not the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, but a score to the 1925 silent film by innovative Canadian composer Andrew Downing. It is a spectacular multimedia work that interweaves a screening of Rupert Julian’s dark & haunting 1925 film, The Phantom of the Opera, with live performance by chorus and chamber ensemble.
Toronto-based composer Andrew Downing’s mesmerizing score returns by popular demand, offering new intensity and nuance to the cult-classic tale of gothic romance, lurking horror, and the unequaled power of music.

Whoa! Are you kidding me? I had to read the prize package twice to make sure it was the same contest. Whoever put that together just created the perfect date night. I can’t decide what part I’d be most excited about. If there was one night to roll the critical hit on the d20 at Storm Crow, this would be it. Bravo!
