Opera Atelier

Help Opera Atelier celebrate Giving Tuesday today by making a contribution through Canada Helps. Your support allows us to create acclaimed period productions that set Opera Atelier apart. Contributions also support the ongoing training of our artists in the repertoire and performance practice of the period, as well as our education and outreach programs for young people.

Opera Atelier provides educational programs like Making of an Opera to schools in priority neighbourhoods, both in-school and at The Elgin Theatre. We work closely with individual teachers to find students that would most benefit from this wonderful education opportunity. Over the next year we plan to broaden our outreach to invite students from the LGBTQ, Blind and Partially Sighted, and Deaf and Hard of Hearing communities.

With education budget cuts, educators are looking more and more to cultural institutions and performing arts companies to provide supplementary education with an interactive component for their students. We hope you will consider partnering with us to provide our education programming entirely free-of-charge, and to further enable the development and education of young Canadians and help us grow a new, informed audience for the future.

"Of deep importance is the fact that tonight's audience is full of very young people...who listened rapt through a five act opera. That in itself must be the greatest testament to Opera Atelier's capacity to speak to all ages from across the ages."
