Join the Greater Victoria Public Library and Pacific Opera Victoria’s Civic Engagement Quartet for Opera 101 every Sunday, where they give you insider tips and tricks on all things opera!


How to Prepare for your First Opera

 
From carb-loading to reading about the opera to pre-ordering wine that comes in a sippy cup, take notes as the Civic Engagement Quartet teaches you how to prepare for your first opera.


How to Sound like an Opera Aficionado

 
The Greater Victoria Public Library and Pacific Opera Victoria’s Civic Engagement Quartet are back to continue your opera education! This week’s lesson: how to sound like an opera aficionado when talking to people in the lobby. They cover terms like legato, coloratura, and the full-proof method of comparing singers’ voices to food, because who doesn’t love the phrase “a chocolate-y voice”?


How to Know an Opera is Great

 
Sit down for your third opera lesson with the Civic Engagement Quartet and the Greater Victoria Public Library as they explain how to know if an opera is great… hint: it’s if you enjoy it!


Backstage Stories

 
The Greater Victoria Public Library and Civic Engagement Quartet are back for your fourth and final Opera 101 Sunday session, this time bringing you stories from backstage and mishaps from onstage!
