We attend a small Opera Atelier event at the ROM. The majority of the music was Purcell bur this performance included a newly commissioned piece. It all blended well. Music, voice and dance.

Attended this excellent classical opera, first performed in Paris in December, 1693. Wonderful music, sets, and costumes by a thoroughly professional cast; in the best traditions of the performances that Opera Atelier specializes in. Well worth the visit!

Baroque opera is never going to appeal to large numbers of people, but all opera lovers should sample its strange delights if they get the (rare) chance. There's always lots of good classical music to be heard in Toronto, but Opera Atelier at the Elgin...More

It's still out there! It's flourishing now in Toronto's Opera Atelier. Turning heads around the world, with recent invitations from Milan, Vienna and Versailles. Classic works from the baroque era done almost like the original work was. Lavish sets and costumes, carefully fashioned librettos, strong...More

Opening night for Armide was absolutely incredible. The orchestra and chorus were on point. The costumes were vibrant in their jewel like tones. As always, the cast members are the most beautiful people pulling off these amazing feats of vocal dexterity and dance. This organization...More

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination

and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
