Beckett 19 sees UBC Theatre alumni performing scenes from the work of Irish playwright Samuel Beckett. Beckett 19 is the UBC fundraiser for the Peter Loeffler Memorial Prize, an award for an undergraduate student majoring in theatre. Over 15 years since the prize was introduced, the Beckett productions have raised over $30,000.
Everything in the auditorium was silent, including the orchestra, aside from the light tapping of rain on the windows. As the music swells, How hits the purest high note I have ever heard.
Silent Night is a unique opera, and the partnership between the UBC School of Music and the Veteran's Transition Network will make the production a unique and once in a lifetime experience.
