Pacific Opera Victoria and the Greater Victoria Public Library are pleased to announce they are partnering to give newcomers the opportunity to attend opera performances free of charge.
POV will provide GVPL with 32 pairs of tickets to its upcoming opera productions, beginning with La Bohème, opening at the Royal Theatre on February 15. Together, POV and GVPL will work with organizations in Greater Victoria to distribute the tickets to people who would otherwise not be able to attend.
The Inter-Cultural Association of Greater Victoria and the Victoria Immigrant and Refugee Centre Society, will receive tickets for La Bohème and POV’s season finale production of Rinaldo in April. Along with tickets, GVPL is providing educational material to enhance the experience: a list of suggested materials (books, CDs, DVDs) related to the operas to borrow.
