Opera Canada posted a review about our 2015 Season. Be sure to check it out!

"The company now goes on hiatus until next year. Its rise each August has become an eagerly anticipated annual rite for local opera buffs, with its shows staged in the dog days of summer rain or shine regularly selling out. And that is magic in itself." Holly Harris, Opera Canada

We are so grateful for our generous artists who are always so willing to perform! Over this year we have been doing monthly performances for the residences of Misericordia Hospital. They are always such a wonderful audience!
