Toronto: Opera Atelier brings performances to the ROM February 18 and 21

Tuesday, February 12, 2019

February is a busy month for Opera Atelier as we bring two performances to the Royal Ontario Museum. We'd love for you to join us!

Dance Through Time

Discover historical dances with Opera Atelier at the Royal Ontario Museum! On Family Day (Monday, February 18th) students from the School of Atelier Ballet will present a program of dances that range from Renaissance and Baroque to 19th century Character Dance, and excerpts from the Romantic ballet. This family friendly program will also include Flamenco dancing, a new contemporary piece and some beautiful songs by Mozart sung by mezzo-soprano Anna Sharpe. Free with ROM admission!

Performances are at 1:30 and 3:30pm, at the Eaton Theatre at the ROM. Performances will run for 40 minutes. ASL interpretation provided.

The Angel Speaks

There's just over a week left until the Toronto premiere of Opera Atelier's production of The Angel Speaks! Last week our dynamic duo composer/violinist Edwin Huizinga and Artist of Atelier Ballet Tyler Gledhill visited our studio to rehearse OA's newest commission. This piece features new music by Edwin and contemporary choreography by Tyler and will be part of The Angel Speaks.

Don't miss Edwin and Tyler in performance at the Royal Ontario Museum on February 21 at 8pm. Be sure to stick around after the show for an informal reception with the artists! Tickets are limited  - book yours now!
