Accommodations: We have a limited number of dorm rooms available for rent at a rate of $35/night for couples or singles (not conducive to families). Preference will be given to attendees that are willing to share a bathroom in a quad dorm setting. Important to note: these are empty dorm rooms, please bring your own bedding, linens, towels, soap, etc. We can provide bedding and towels for $10 (one-time fee).

Accessibility needs: For all accessibility needs, please reach out to us at alumni@briercrest.ca. We’ll do our best to meet individual needs. 

What is Opera Scenes?: Opera Scenes is an opportunity for current vocal students and faculty to perform staged and costumed scenes from various operas. This year, spectators can enjoy scenes from Mozart’s, The Magic Flute, Verdi’s Il Trovatore, and Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Gondoliers. The Magic Flute is a tale about courage, virtue, and wisdom, which revolves around a foreign prince who falls in love with the daughter of the infamous Queen of the Night. Vivaldi’s Il Trovatore brings a dramatic story of love and revenge, with scenes which highlight the rousing choruses. The humorous Gondoliers spins the tale of two charming Venetian gondoliers, who search for true love amid mistaken identity.
