PHANTOM OF THE OPERA
Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada
Inspired by Gaston Leroux’s 1910 novel, Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada’s PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is a captivating story which evokes timeless themes and images of outcasts, love, and the power of obsession. With original choreography by Igor Dobrovolskiy set to the music of Francis Poulenc, PHANTOM OF THE OPERA features lush costumes created by Paul Daigle and an intriguing set design by Brian Perchaluk. Pierre Lavoie’s ethereal mix of light and shadows perfectly captures the eerie world where a love triangle ensnares, Erik, the beautiful ingénue whom he loves, and the dashing young viscount who wins her heart.
Tickets: $35 adults $17.50 students
Available online and at the Venables Theatre Box Office Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays 10-3.
Friday May 5 & Saturday May 6 - 7:30
SINCE YOU LEFT US
presented by SOAP Theatre
There’s dysfunctional and there’s really, really dysfunctional. The family in Since You Left Us is one of the latter: shot through with alcoholism, bad parenting, sibling rivalry and unhealthy co-dependency (with a Jack Russell terrier named ... Jack).
Since You Left Us is laugh-out-loud funny until the end when something is revealed that suddenly makes the play profoundly poignant. Since You Left US has all the hallmarks of a farce, complete with its over-the-top characters and the ridiculous situations they find themselves in. Vancouver playwright Susinn McFarlen shows her ample skills by giving us so much more than a simple silly romp. Ridiculously funny and poignant. Since You Left Us will leave you wanting more!
Since You Left Us is the third play in SOAP's 2016/2017 season.
