Pirate alert

This a shameless plug, although unpaid. Two powerful elements of Vancouver’s culture come together in the next short while and you ought to think about joining the experience.

To the uninitiated, at least in our part of the world, opera might seem a touch pretentious. Shakespeare might be thought the same, but, again, only to the uninitiated. People who immerse themselves in either come away enthralled.

Christopher Gaze, Western Canada’s Shakespearian icon, is performing in the Vancouver Opera version of Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance. We’ve got tickets; you should have them too.

 

Just remember that the amount Christy Clark’s government spends on self-promoting advertisements is three times what the province spends on arts, culture and sport. We rely on professionals like Christopher Gaze for cultural activities that match any in the English speaking world.
