Event Details

Calvin Dyck, the Abbotsford Youth Orchestra and the Fraser Valley Academy of Dance will present an exciting and visceral arrangement of Bizet’s opera “Carmen” with a twist! This version of the opera is NOT for voices, but instead written for strings and 27 percussion instruments played by 5 top-notch professional percussionists and augmented with dance! The concert will happen on Friday, June 7th at 7pm at the Abbotsford Arts Centre (2329 Crescent Way).

Bizet’s melodies are re-clothed in a variety of fresh instrumental colors, set to new rhythms and often phrased with a great deal of sly wit. Reviewer James Sanderson calls the work “an iconoclastic but highly entertaining retelling of Bizet’s opera.”

Also included in this year-end concert will be other pieces performed by all of the divisions of the Abbotsford Youth Orchestra.

Tickets:  Adults: $29.36 (taxes & fees incl),   Srs (65+): $26 Students (5+): $18.18
