Join us for our next event May 1-June 1, 2023!
Ever since Opera Mariposa’s inception, we’ve held an annual Benefit + Awareness event in May to raise funds and awareness for chronic neuro-immune diseases. So far we’ve raised over $116,000 for this cause – and brought you in-person concerts and revue shows, studio singles, music videos, prize giveaways, online artist showcases and more!
This year, we’re once again bringing you an all-online charity extravaganza with 100% of the proceeds benefit the ME | FM Society of BC. Stay tuned for more details, coming soon (or sign up for the Mariposa newsletter). In the meantime, check out some of the music, videos and merch from past events – as well as media coverage from The Peak, BC Disability, Broadway World and Stir Vancouver, and a special Mariposa radio episode in honour of last year’s Global Accessibility Awareness Day!
