Off Leash

With the changes going on at the Vancouver Opera, is it safe to say that opera is now gone to the dogs? Quite literally, in fact! Fugue Theatre brings us Off Leash,  "a 'fusion-operetta' that deals with savage loneliness in an urban area." How's that for operatic drama?

The story revolves around dog owners and their pets at a local off-leash dog park. Living in Vancouver, we're bound to have gone to one of these at some point in our lives. But the regulars of these haunts may see familiar territory as the canines and the humans (both played by the same actors) turn on one another and erupt into a tension filled showdown.

Off Leash runs this week until November 8 at Studio 16 on Granville Island. Tickets available online.
