Figaro Unplugged

Not only are the cast of The Marriage of Figaro talented, but they love giving back to the community as well!

This past Monday, Vancouver Opera paired up with Health Arts Society to bring some mid-morning singing to the fine folks at Youville Residence.

Health Arts Society (ArtsWay) has been organizing musical performances to over 100 BC long-term health care facilities since 2006.

With VO's repetiteur Kinza Tyrrell at the piano, the cast sang Figaro arias and duets for the 40 member audience.

In such an intimate setting, followed by a Q & A session at the end, it may have been more fun than seeing it down at the theatre!
