Win a Phantom of the Opera Date Night

Comments 129 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Vancouver Bach Choir, currently celebrating its 85th anniversary season, presents Downing’s Phantom of the Opera at the Orpheum this February.

Win a Phantom of the Opera Date Night

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!
