Event Notes

× Missing summer and gardening already? Get a final fix of those sunny days and warm temps with Manitoba Opera’s Opera in the Garden series – your private tour of three show-stopping Winnipeg properties topped off with performances by three talented Winnipeg singers.

Episode 1: Armstrong’s Point

Featuring soprano Lara Ciekiewicz Accompanied by Tadeusz Biernacki

Nestled in the historic Armstrong’s Point neighborhood, this lush smaller garden packs in a variety of colourful annuals, perennials, shrubs, and trees and has had to adapt to a changing environment with the removal of beloved Elm trees in recent years.

Episode 2: Assiniboine Landing

Featuring tenor James McLennan Accompanied by Tadeusz Biernacki

Overlooking the Assiniboine River just west of the city, this contemporary residence’s garden focal point is a pond complete with a bridge. With numerous seating areas to relax in sun or shade, there’s always a chance of spotting the visiting wildlife. The property fronts in this neighborhood also feature a wide boulevard of naturalized prairie plants.

Episode 3: McCreary Road

Featuring soprano Jessica Kos-Whicher Accompanied by Lisa Rumpel

An English garden with fountains, contemporary swimming pool, and country property all combine to provide a restful retreat just minutes from city shopping and the Fort Whyte Centre. The gardens feature a riot of colourful perennials and annuals, and an impressive banana tree that overwinters in the basement.
