Crack open the Cristal, cuz things are gonna get wiggy when the Vancouver Bach Choir celebrates the 200th birthdays of homeboys Giuseppe Verdi and Richard Wagner. Although these two musical titans never met, their artistic rivalry and subsequent works changed the world of opera forever. The party gets started March 23, 8 p.m. at the Orpheum and includes the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and soloists from the UBC Opera Ensemble. For tickets and more info on the Verdi/Wagner Bicentennial concert, go to vancouverbachchoir.com or call 604-696-4290.
