The Butterfly

The butterfly is often evoked as a symbol of transformation, and this new musical theatre revue takes metamorphosis as its theme. Acclaimed sopranos Jacqueline Ko and Robin Eder-Warren share powerful songs from such Broadway hits as Les Misérables, Frozen, and Wicked, weaving themes of overcoming adversity and telling one's story through music.

Besides treating theatre fans, the evening also raises awareness about Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and other chronic neuro-immune diseases. It's a personal cause for Ko, who has lived with the condition since the age of six. All of the proceeds from the event will benefit the BC Women's Hospital Foundation and their Complex Chronic Diseases Program.

Opera Mariposa

Opera Mariposa's mission is in its name. Taking its title from the Spanish word for "butterfly," the company aims to inspire talented and promising young performers to shed their literal cocoons and morph into the stars of tomorrow. It's the vision of soprano Jacqueline Ko, who set out to spotlight up-and-coming talent in the Vancouver community. Under her artistic direction, local artists share both original and time-honoured pieces, ranging from revues of Broadway numbers to stagings of eighteenth-century works. It's an approach that has won acclaim from audiences and critics alike—one of the young company's productions was hailed as "a masterpiece" by Review Vancouver, while The Voice called another "a stroke of genius."
