Join Opera Mariposa for an opera-themed summer extravaganza! This August, the company that “stands at the forefront of Vancouver’s opera scene” (The Vancouver Project) is fundraising for their 2019-2020 season with a sumptuous costumed concert, presented alongside their first-ever costume and prop sale.
The sale starts at noon, and the concert is at 3pm. Take in a dazzling performance of operatic highlights, including hits from Carmen, La bohème, The Magic Flute and many more. Then stick around to shop Mariposa’s award-winning costume and prop collection, as well as beautiful collectibles and curiosities from other vendors such as Donald’s Eye Chainmail Jewellery. The costume sale includes lots of contemporary outfits and accessories (perfect for the bargain-hunting fashionista), as well as elaborate dance costumes, traditional and vintage garments, and opera outfits that truly belong centre stage. Follow Mariposa on Facebook and Instagram for sneak peeks of some of the items that will be available – then join the fun on Saturday, August 24th to revel in an afternoon of beautiful music, and to shop ‘til you drop!
Please note: Mariposa will be accepting both cash and credit card during the sale, but the concession stand will be cash only. If you are a vendor who would like to sell clothing, accessories, props, set decor or collectibles at our event, please get in touch at email@example.com.
