About Vancouver Opera Orchestra :
Vancouver Opera is fortunate to have one of only two professional opera orchestras in Canada. The Vancouver Opera Orchestra was established in 1977, replacing an orchestra made up of members of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. Comprised of the region’s leading freelance players, the VO Orchestra has developed into a fine ensemble that has taken the specialized and demanding art of pit performance to a very high level. Several of the current roster of musicians were in the pit for the orchestra’s inaugural performances, in 1977, of Massenet’s Le Roi de Lahore, starring Joan Sutherland and conducted by founding Music Director Richard Bonynge. There have since been two music directors: David Agler (1992-1999) and Jonathan Darlington (2002 to the present).
Maestro Shardad rohani will conduct Vancouver Opera Orchestra in this Concert.
