Vancouver on the Cheap: Opera Mariposa’s The Butterfly


If you were to create a Venn diagram where one circle was labeled “cheap” and the other labeled “awesome”, the middle point where they cross over could be labeled “Vancouver on the Cheap”. In other words, this is a weekly series on things to do and places to go in Vancouver that fall into that magical category of being both cheap and awesome.

Here’s a special exclusive, just for VIA readers! Local opera company Opera Mariposa is staging a new musical theatre revue The Butterfly on May 17th to raise funds for BC’s first Complex Chronic Diseases Program. Two award-winning sopranos, Jacqueline Ko and Robin Eder-Warren, will sing songs from shows like Frozen, Wicked and Les Misérables, put together to tell their stories. Tickets for this event are normally $22, but with the promo code “VIA” you can get $15 – that’s cheaper than the student price!
