Opera on the Shores of Lafarge Lake

Opera on the Lake Candide Evergreen Cultural Centre Coquitlam

If you’re looking for some serious culture in the Tri-Cities this summer, check out Evergreen Cultural Centre. They’re planning to bring Opera on the Lake back to the shores of Lafarge Lake on August 23-25, 2013.

Opera on the Lake is presented by DragonDiva Operatic Theatre, based in New Westminster. They’re on a mission to create high calibre opera that is accessible to both opera lovers and future enthusiasts. To accomplish that, they foster an environment where artists learn from each other. They will be performing Leonard Bernstein’s Candide at 8:00pm on the 23rd and 24th, and at 2:00pm on the 25th.

From the creator of West Side Story, Candide is a fantastical operetta based on Voltaire’s novel of the same name. This energetic performance will feature young love, murder, travel … and, apparently, sheep. We’re intrigued.

As if all that isn’t enough, following the performance you’ll retreat to the lobby for complimentary dessert and coffee, as well as the chance to mingle with your fellow attendees.

Tickets are $25 each. To get yours visit www.evergreenculturalcentre.ca or call 604.927.6555.
