PR – Live at the Met Opera: Wozzeck

February 29 @ 10:00 am | Max Cameron Theatre, Powell River
$24 – $27

Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts William Kentridge’s new production of Alban Berg’s expressionistic masterpiece Wozzeck, regarded for its intense emotional power and brilliant score as one of the most significant operas of the 20th century. Composed during and in the aftermath of World War I, Berg’s dark exploration of a soldier besieged by the evils of society, is staged by Kentridge in a ramshackle warren of stairs, ramps, discarded furniture, and debris.

Film Screening: “Parasite” – POSTPONED

March 12 @ 2:00 pm | Raven’s Cry Theatre, Sechelt
$5 – $9

Winner of the Golden Globes "Best Foreign Film" and the Audience Choice Award at VIFF in 2019, this darkly-comic social satire explores themes of class, materialism, and social inequity. A Korean family living a hardscrabble existence employs various schemes to insinuate themselves into the lives of a wealthy family. Director Bong has asked festival audiences not to reveal what happens next—and for good reason—the second act jumps wildly in tenor and tone leading to a startling conclusion. "A malign delight."
