Welcome back to the 2019-20 Season

Hello to all of Calgary Opera’s wonderful volunteers,

Welcome back or welcome for the first time to our 2019-2020 season.  We are beginning this year with the perennial classic La Boheme by Giacomo Puccini in November followed by Vincenzo Bellini’s Norma in February and finally Richard Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos in April and May.

I look forward to meeting some new volunteers this season and welcoming back all of the familiar faces.  I will be sending out the sign up sheet for Volunteering at La Boheme in the first week of October.

We’ve made some changes to how we’re running things in the lobby of the Jubilee Auditorium this season.  The biggest change is that we no longer have an Opera Shop!  Unfortunately we were not able to keep up with acquiring unique and relevant opera items that really added value to the opera going experience so for now we have closed that door.  We will have the opportunity for more Lineup helpers at the box office as well as will increase our presence in the lobby and by the doors with stationary information volunteers.  We will also be looking for some help at the Will Call table during Dress Rehearsals this year.

Thank you all so much for continuing to choose to spend your time and energy with us here, it is appreciated at every level of the company.

If you have any questions drop me a line at pkesler@calgaryopera.com.

See you all soon,

Patricia Kesler
