NIGHT BEFORE THE OPERA
Wednesday October 23, 7pm – 8pm
Carnegie Theatre, 401 Main
Night Before the Opera is a program offered by Vancouver Opera to low income residents of the Downtown Eastside. The night before the dress rehearsal of each opera they produce, the company presents related music and video in an educational and entertaining hour at the Carnegie Community Centre. Tonight they will share insight into Puccini’sTosca and then offer one hundred free tickets to attending community members for the dress rehearsal at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. This event has been offered in the community for many years and the late Jim Green was instrumental in bringing an interest in opera to the Downtown Eastside. Vancouver Opera will rename this ongoing evening as the Jim Green Night Before the Opera in recognition of Jim’s connection to the community and his love of opera. Free

This event was on  Day 1 of  the 12 Days of the Heart of the City Festival. Please check the website for more events!

On page 9 of the Festival Program guide, there is a writeup on AHA MEDIA

The Festival is thrilled to partner with the DTES’s AHA Media to provide social media coverage (video/photos/blog) of the Heart of the City Festival. AHA Media gives voice to our local community and provides services for individuals and organizations to share their news and special events on a broader scale through social media. Founded in 2008 by local artists April Smith, Hendrik Beune, and Al Tkatch, AHA Media previously collaborated with Fearless City Media and has an ongoing working relationship with W2Community Media Arts and various other organizations and individuals in the DTES community. The members of AHA Media describe themselves as “definitely not mainstream media”. Based in Vancouver’s DTES, their style is described as non-invasive and unassuming.
