Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for music when it debuted in 1958, Vanessa's story entertains enthusiasts with melodious singing in the intimate Royal Theatre. Vanessa follows the title character, a heroine who has defied age since her affair with a married man. When her lover's son, Anatol, sets out to find the beautiful woman who haunted his parents' marriage, he entangles himself, Vanessa, and her niece Erika into a fatal love triangle. Set in an endless winter, the story explores the nature of love and evokes the power of Greek tragedy without forcing attendees to dress like Titans.

All Pacific Opera Victoria costumes and sets are crafted in the opera's own Victoria shop and designed exclusively for each production, ensuring a stimulating visual feast imbued with creative integrity and homemade gravy. Pre-performance lectures at 6:45 p.m. in the west lobby of the Royal Theatre inform opera buffs on all the latest opera-going techniques.
