Tapestry Opera


..."where the future of Canadian Opera is being made today". -Toronto Star Tapestry is an international home for new work creation, development and performance through its unique and highly collaborative work process. Beginning with composers and writers, Tapestry provides guidance and support through the collaborative process of new opera creation. Beyond the premiere, Tapestry seeks opportunities to showcase new works to a range of local, national, and international audiences. These new works, grown out of contemporary situations by living artists, speak directly to the experiences of today’s audiences. Tapestry is also committed to devising innovative, creation-based outreach activities, including the INside Opera Education Program. Over the course of 35 years, Tapestry has been instrumental in shifting the culture of opera in Canada and has helped to shape a framework for new opera development in Canada and abroad.
