Why support VCO? 

Vera Causa Opera is the only opera organization in Canada which provides paid, professional, and season-long opportunities to individuals, aimed at supporting their health and well-being. We provide affordable by-donation entertainment to the community, have free admission for students and kids, and promote our community’s local businesses throughout the year.

Learning together

High school students have a social and innovative place to earn their volunteer hours and develop new skills through our Mentorship Program. Students of all ages can learn how to be a Stage Director, Makeup Artist, Costumer Designer, and more.

Ways that you can support us...


We provide paid developmental opportunities to aspiring young singers, orchestra musicians, actors, and composers. To date, we have given opportunities to over 100 artists. 

See a show

We adapt traditional operas to suit a modern audience and produce brand new operas by local Canadians. Our 3-4 opera productions a year feature a full orchestra, a community chorus, and more.

Give us a review

Your words can help inspire others to see a show or be involved at VCO. We are proud of the work we have done in the community and the positive reputation we have developed. We are grateful when people spread the word about our organization.


We create an inclusive opera community by allowing everyone, regardless of their educational background, to be involved in our operas. One example includes how our operas are regularly staged by directors who have never directed an opera before.
