Event Description

Opera Mariposa presents an evening of opera, Broadway and Disney music for charity! In The Impossible Dream, multi-award-winning soprano Jacqueline Ko joins pianist Karen Shumka to perform highlights from Hamilton, Wicked, Mulan, Madama Butterfly and more. Go on a musical journey with the singer who "knows exactly what to do with an absolutely gorgeous voice" (Review Vancouver), then indulge at the delicious dessert buffet and enter to win thousands of dollars in prizes. To honour the International Awareness Day for chronic neuroimmune diseases, 100% of proceeds will support the ME|FM Society of BC.

Starring
Jacqueline Ko, soprano
Karen Shumka, piano

THE STORY BEHIND THE SHOW:
Performer, producer and disability advocate Jacqueline Ko has lived with the systemic neuroimmune disease Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) since age six. Despite the challenges of her illness, which left her bedbound for years, she has managed to become a multi-award-winning singer and the co-founder of Opera Mariposa. She is committed to using her passion for music to help others, and since producing her first Benefit + Awareness show at age seventeen she has raised nearly $70,000 for chronic neuroimmune disease treatment, research, education and patient support. Her story is featured in the book ‘Lighting Up a Hidden World: CFS and ME’ by Valerie Free.
