Vancouver Opera Festival presents From Russia with Love to Jonathan Darlington
To pay tribute to Jonathan Darlington’s extraordinary fifteen-year music-making partnership with the Vancouver Opera Orchestra, join us for a special evening full of surprises, including Maestro Darlington at the piano and a special appearance by GOH ballet dancers. We will raise a toast to Maestro Darlington in the lobby after the performance!
The performance will include “Two Pieces for 6 hands” by Sergei Rachmaninoff, Russian arias performed by principals from Eugene Onegin, and Igor Stravinsky’s The Soldier’s Tale – Suite with violin, double bass, clarinet, bassoon, trumpet, trombone, and percussion.
Polished and intimate, the Vancouver Playhouse exudes a cozy atmosphere that lends a familial dimension to dance, film and theatre performances. The open plan stage makes the space particularly appealing for acoustically-driven performances like chamber music and spoken theatre.Explore This Venue
