Opera Takes to the Streets
Opera Singers are jumping in a hybrid-electric van and taking opera to the streets. All summer singers from Pacific Opera will be travelling and performing in public spaces throughout the Capital Regional District four days per week – Saturday, Sunday and two weekdays.
Pop Up Opera features one or two singers accompanied by recorded tracks created by pianist Robert Holliston. Each day the singer(s) will pop up in 8 or 10 spots for 10 minutes of music. Pop Up Operas will take place in neighbourhoods, on street corners, in parks, and outside retirement residences and care facilities.
One location that allows for easy access and social distancing will be announced online each performance day. Check this page – or Pacific Opera’s Social Media or email
firstname.lastname@example.org for daily details.
Care residences may also request a Pop Up Opera performance by emailing email@example.com.
Pop Up Opera also takes requests. Pop Up Opera Postcards are short, live performances available for delivery in Greater Victoria. Those requesting a free Pop Up Opera Postcard for someone special can select from a list of opera repertoire. Requests should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org
Nine local opera artists have been employed by Pacific Opera for the Pop Up Opera series:
