Vancouver Opera announced its new education program, “Opera 101” which will begin via Zoom on May 3.

The company has designed a five-session course specifically for adults to gain an understanding of the basics of opera music and singers, the industry, production, and historical and current context. The class will be led by soprano Eve Daniell and feature special guests including Leslie Dala, the Associate Conductor at Vancouver Opera.

Tom Wright, Vancouver Opera’s  General Director stated, “Vancouver Opera has been providing children and youth with school and student programs for many years and we are thrilled to be able to expand our education program to adults. Our new Opera 101 course is designed to welcome all into the world of opera including opera lovers and those who are opera curious. The primary goal is to make opera accessible and to invite the community to dig deeper into this extraordinary art form.”

The registration for “Opera 101” is currently open.
