Announcing Our 2014/15 Season:

We're delighted to announce that the Department of Theatre and Film and the School of Music's Opera Program will be merging our production seasons starting in the fall of 2014.  This merger is a landmark event for both programs; Opera and Theatre at UBC have enjoyed an informal association since the 1960’s, and this new formal alliance of our production areas has been developing since the founding of the UBC Opera ensemble by Professor Nancy Hermiston in 1995. 

The combined Opera and Theatre season of shows will be unique among Canadian post-secondary programs, an unparalleled training environment for student performers, directors, designers, and technicians, as well as a marvelous expansion of the opportunities to enjoy great live events on the UBC Vancouver campus. 

We not only present this wonderful combined season of live performances, but we’ll also, for the first time in our history, be premiering an original film created entirely by students; “Naked Cinema”, which will be ushered to the screen by award winning filmmaking collaborators Bruce Sweeney and UBC Associate Professor Tom Scholte. 

Our new subscription packages and extra events will be available to you online by July 30

Please join us to experience the exciting work of our next generation of theatre, opera and film artists.
