the arts


I'm traveling up to Vancouver the beginning of August this summer and I would like to attend some sort of arts show. I was looking into musicals and found the phantom of the opera but I was told about something called the dance of the sultan's.

Does anybody know about this show and when and where it is playing?

That would be "Night of the Sultans" -- it was playing at the River Rock Casino in June but it's over now.

If you like Shakespeare you might want to check out Bard on the Beach - https://www.bardonthebeach.org/

The Centre for Performing Arts is presenting "Of Heaven And Earth," which might be interesting: "A true fusion of East and West, Of Heaven and Earth combines the grand scale of a Broadway production with the ancient traditions of Chinese dance, music and martial arts." http://www.centreinvancouver.com/index.php.

And of course there is the HSBC Celebration of Light fireworks festival which will be on July 26, 29, August 2 and 5.http://www.hsbccelebrationoflight.com/fireworks/

Hope this gives you a few ideas. Enjoy your visit!

I would check out our local free arts/culture/entertainment weekly paper/magazine called "The Georgia Straight". It's available almost everywhere, and there's also a website. It carries information on live theatre, dance, art galleries, music of all sorts, movies, restaurants, etc. etc.
