Theatres & Performing Arts

The stage: the blank canvas of performance arts. For centuries, Theatre has been a powerful form of artistic expression that captivates audiences and provides endless opportunity for creativity. The timeless performance of an actor presenting a dramatic monologue; the quiet grace and elegance of the ballet; the extravagant costumes and boldness of the opera; the actualization of an imagined world created by set designers — every experience of the theatre is unique and memorable.

From Bard on the Beach to the VSO, experimental theatre to traditional Chinese dance, British Columbia brings the world to your fingertips.
