An inspired collaboration between Pacific Opera Victoria and the University of Victoria Libraries has resulted in the creation of exhibits and displays which draw us into the world of the new Canadian opera Mary's Wedding. The University of Victoria Libraries present The World of Mary's Wedding: Reminiscences of World War I from the University of Victoria Archives and Special Collections. These exhibits and displays may be viewed:

As we view the exhibits and through the act of remembering we honour those, both at home and abroad, who gave the ultimate sacrifice in a war that was fought almost a century ago.
