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! In the fall of 2020, Opera Mariposa was fortunate enough to receive support from Creative BC and the City of Vancouver to explore safer music-making processes during the pandemic. The result was the launch of our ‘Opera Treats’ series.

Check out some of our videos to date, and subscribe to our YouTube channel to make sure you don’t miss a thing!

Access: Videos include captioning, a transcript of song lyrics and an English translation in both the video description and linked digital show programmes. Run times range from approx. 3 minutes to 7.5 minutes.
