Thank you to everyone who joined us for last year’s event!

Check back in February for information about Opera al fresco 2020.

Celebrate summer with live music, hors d'oeuvres, and wine

Arrive at the picturesque University of Alberta Botanic Garden for an unforgettable celebration of summer at Opera al Fresco! You can enjoy hors d'oeuvres, a selection of wines, and performances of opera & musical theatre favourites at four stages, including the spectacular new Aga Khan Garden.


Special thanks to our Opera al Fresco sponsor


Please note that as Opera al Fresco is an outdoor event, every effort will be made to continue with the performance during rain or inclement weather. There will be no refunds if extreme weather causes a cancellation. However, if organizers must cancel the event, patrons will receive a complimentary ticket to a future opera performance, and complimentary admission for a future visit to the garden, which will be mailed to ticket purchasers. On event day, check our website for up to date information.
