For thirty years Opera Atelier has been bringing operas from the baroque and classical eras to Toronto. The group has also performed at Gliimerglass Opera in Cooperstown, in Versailles, Salzburg and Milan, among other places. Their standards, as seen in the recent production of Mozart's Lucio Silla at the Elgin Theatre, are very high, and the singers they attract are... 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 voices and characterizations, a live orchestra (complete with lutes), a baroque choir in the wings,... More

Opera the way it should be. Excellent production, sets, costumes, singers. Nice relieve from Eurotrash.

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 deserves every accolade they have received. This is not your stodgy style of opera -... More

Costumes were stunning, story wonderful and signing excellent! For me, it didn't have the same magic as seeing marionettes perform The Magic Flute at the Salzburg Marionette Theatre in Salzburg, Austria. I loved Papageno so much in the marionette version that I had to have one of my own! Perhaps the use of strings and the like made his bumbling... More

This is the 12th show of The Magic Flute that I have seen performed by Opera Atelier. It never disappoints. Amazing costumes and staging! And Olivier L. as Papageno is so human and funny!!

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip 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 vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
