Opera request could be put in Limbo until spring

Staff recommends Vancouver Island Opera request for a break on the rent be put off until March

Vancouver Island Opera is hoping for a break on the rent when they raise the curtain on their October performance run at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre.

Its likely however they won’t get an answer to their requeset until the spring.

In a letter to council, Vancouver Island Opera president Tatiana Vasilieva asked for a reduced rental rate for the facility for their Oct. 26, 27 and 28 performacnes in Qualicum Beach.

However, in a recommendation to council, deputy corporate administrator Heather Svensen recommended that council defer a decision on the request until  the March 12 council meeting.

 

Council will make a decision on the request at Monday night’s council meeting, which starts at 7 p.m. at town hall.
