Opera Treats

Bite-sized opera on demand

Craving opera? Mariposa is delighted to serve up bite-sized musical content from some of our award-winning artists – free, accessible and online! Last fall, Opera Mariposa was fortunate enough to receive support from Creative BC and the City of Vancouver to explore safe music-making processes during the pandemic. The result was the launch of our ‘Opera Treats’ series. Check out the first two videos, and subscribe to our YouTube channel to make sure you don’t miss a thing!
