21st Annual Chutzpah! Festival

  • When: November 4 to 24, 2021
  • Where: Norman & Annette Rothstein Theatre, Wosk Auditorium, Sidney & Gertrude Zack Gallery at the JCC, and online
  • Tickets: Available now. Single tickets start at $18 (plus fees)

The Chutzpah! Festival opens on November 4th with an interactive concert by City Opera Vancouver at the Norman & Annette Rothstein Theatre.

What better way to welcome audiences back to the Norman & Annette Rothstein Theatre than with the pinnacle of Jewish comedy – a special screening of the Marx Bros. classic A Night at the Opera. To kick off the festivities, City Opera Vancouver will sing the operatic music parodied in the film, with fun and surprises in store. The 30s cinema experience will include festive treats, glamour, and a costume contest.  City Opera Vancouver singers Michelle Koebke (soprano) and Martin Renner Wallace (tenor) will be joined tonight by pianist Roger Parton.
