To bard or not to bard, that’s a stupid question. GO!
Celebrating the opening of its 23rd season last night my adventure was to attend the opening performance of a Vancouver cultural icon, Bard On The Beach. The performance was The Taming Of The Shrew. It was spectacular if not a little cold, but Bard can’t control the weather and we are in the experiencing the weirdest “Junuary” weather I’ve seen in ages.
We were whisked inside the beautiful tent, treated to a short intro by Artistic Director Christopher Gaze and then the performance began. At this point all of my photos are courtesy of Bard On The Beach and were taken by David Blue. The performance was tight, funny and kept the audience in stitches all night. Oh did you know you could follow along with Bard with their new iPHONE APP? Check it out here.
So if you are looking for a cultural adventure check out Bard. It really is a fantastic experience and it runs until Sept 22nd. Other plays in this season include Macbeth, The Merry Wives of Windsor, and King John.
My next Adventure is a tour via boat up the Fraser River into Pitt Lake. Stay tuned and get out there and explore!
