From the opera company that brought you "Witches, Waifs, and Wives," a concert that was hailed as "a stroke of genius," (Langara Voice) comes a benefit concert like no other! On May 12th, just in time for Mother's Day, join award-winning soprano and Opera Mariposa co-founder Jacqueline Ko and guests for a stunning evening of beautiful opera and Broadway songs, including favourites by Mozart and Puccini, Sondheim and Stephen Schwartz. All proceeds go to the BC Women's Hospital Foundation's new Complex Chronic Diseases Program, a breakthrough clinic specializing in the treatment of patients suffering from illnesses such as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and Lyme disease.

Soprano Jacqueline Ko has lived with ME/CFS since the age of six. Despite the challenges of her illness, she has found a way to realize her dream of becoming professional opera singer and founding her own opera company, becoming the youngest Artistic Director of any opera company in Vancouver. In honour of International ME/CFS & FM Awareness Day, she hopes to use her passion for music to support research and treatment and raise awareness for these debilitating diseases. The evening will include a small reception and a prize raffle.
