If you grew up watching a certain animated cartoon rabbit, you will likely have had a solid introduction to opera… if you pay attention to the music used in advertisements on television, you will absolutely recognize some of the offerings in Vivaldi Chamber Choir’s June 10th show: “What’s OPERA Doc?”

Featuring four local opera soloists, one incredible “10-fingered orchestra”, an “opera chorus” with exceptional style and one very happy conductor - - you will be treated to a program of operatic highlights that will have your heart singing.

Shimmering moments from eleven different operas will be woven together to create a magical evening of music, including Verdi’s La Traviata, Aida, Nabucco and Don Carlos, Puccini’s Turandot, Mascagni’s Cavaleria Rusticana, Bizet’s Carmen, Léhar’s Merry Widow, Bellini’s La Sonnambula, Délibe’s Lakmé, and Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro.

Guests will enjoy the red carpet treatment as they arrive, and everyone is encouraged to come “dressed for the opera” - including the singers in the show; from ballgowns to blue jeans and tuxedos, to stilettos, we want to make this an event to remember.

A 50-50 draw will happen on June 10th, with tickets being sold before the show and at intermission - the proceeds of which will be used to help the choir create their 2023-2024 season. Also available for purchase… Season’s Subscriptions, so that you can enjoy next season’s shows at this season’s prices AND guarantee you get to see all three spectacular shows.

Payment by cash, cheque and e-transfer will be accepted for the 50-50 and Subscriptions.


The choir and soloists will be singing unmasked for this concert - having completed daily Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Tests for the seven days leading up to the show. Masks will be available for attendees, and masking is strongly recommended for those seated in the first three rows, due to potential exposure to aerosols from the choir and soloists.
