About Opera Nanaimo

Opera Nanaimo was founded in 2013 by Carol Fetherston and Michael and Bonnie Stebbings. Their primary purpose was threefold: to launch an organization that could produce and perform appealing operatic works for all music lovers to enjoy; to create performance opportunities for local and province-wide musical talent; to perserve and expand the Island’s rich cultural environment. Today, Opera Nanaimo has grown to the point where it now aspires to stage one full-length operatic production each year along with other vocal events. As many know well, staging professional-quality operatic works is complex, costly, and requires both internal and ongoing community support. For this reason, we at ON hope that VI residents will consider becoming involved (See: Involvement.) and become part of its exciting, enjoyable musical journey.
