If you’re taking a trip to Vancouver Island in March or April, your visit may coincide with any number of events. Below, we take a look at three shows for the stage that’ll be taking place over the next couple of months.

Ah, Bach. You know music must be good if it’s as relevant today as it was several centuries ago! On April 20, you’ll have the chance to enjoy a huge performance of his St. Matthew Passion, which will be brought to life by two choirs and two orchestras. It’ll be an immersive, powerful experience -- the perfect way to enjoy all the riches of spring. Takes place at the Farquhar at UVic.
And if that wasn’t enough culture, on March 29 and 30 you’ll be able to see a performance of The Magical Flute, which was Mozart’s final opera. It’ll be taking place at the Metro Theatre.
