Start off your holiday season on the right note, with a gift that can make a difference! Giving Tuesday is a fast-growing annual tradition for many Canadians, and is a chance to give back to the community after enjoying the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping deals. 

This year, Edmonton Opera is partnering with Kids Up Front to bring the everlasting magic of opera to children and families. 

On November 29, visit our website or give us a call at 780.429.1000 and contribute! Every $20 gift will provide a child's ticket to the opera, and every $100 gift will bring a family of four to our upcoming production of Cinderella.

Roman Holiday at the Garneau Theatre (free event)

Immerse yourself in the vintage charm of the 1950's as we present a free screening of Roman Holiday starring Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck at the Garneau Theatre. 

This reverse-Cinderella story features a beautiful princess (Hepburn) who is tired of her royalty and ends up finding her prince charming in an American journalist (Peck). Sparks fly and romance comes alive in classic Hollywood style — much like our own 1950's-inspired high fashion production of Cinderella!

Wednesday, January 11, 2017 • Garneau Theatre • 7 pm

Free admission, sign up for your free ticket on Eventbrite.

Naughty or nice, opera gifts make everyone happy!

The holiday season is nearly here and you know what that means — time to start planning gifts for your friends and family. Good thing we have you covered with some festive opera treats that will make everyone's holidays extra special!

This winter, Edmonton Opera presents two spectacular productions: Rossini's romantic comedy Cinderella (Feb. 4, 7 & 9) and Strauss's gripping drama Elektra (Mar. 11, 14 & 16). Experience both with our Opera Duo packages starting at just $72. Purchasing an Opera Duo gives you up to 20% off compared to single ticket prices, which means you can also stay on budget this gifting season!

You may also purchase an Edmonton Opera gift certificate in any amount, which can be applied towards any of our upcoming productions — it's the perfect stocking stuffer!

Cinderella Opera 101 (free event)

Before you attend our February production of Rossini's charming Cinderella, learn more about the music and themes of this bel canto masterpiece at Opera 101.
