Got to love short work weeks, Victoria.

It’s already Wednesday! While there might be snow in the forecast, that doesn’t mean you have to stay at home (unless it’s and insane snowstorm of course)!

Here are five things to do in and around Victoria this Wednesday, February 22nd:

The Birds at the Royal Theatre

When two disillusioned humans journey into the realm of Thrushes, Wrens, and Ravens, their ill-advised counsel leads to a thunderous reckoning with the gods.

Good Hope and Loyal Friend don’t set out to destroy the utopian world of the birds – they simply want to rule it. In this tale of suspicion and persuasion, danger, and desire, when warnings of wise Eagles and fearsome titans are ignored, the wrath of Zeus himself rains down on the Citadel of the birds.

With sumptuous melodies that dance through the air evoking the scent of flowers, and radiant arias fitting a Nightingale, this lavish comedic opera begs you to ask yourself – what do you long for?
