Toronto’s new Opera House

Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts
Designed by Toronto architect Jack Diamond and located at 145 Queen St. W., the Four Seasons Centre integrates the best features of the grand European opera houses with innovative technology in acoustics and sightlines. As well as being the new home of the Canadian Opera Company, the Four Seasons Centre is also the performance venue for The National Ballet of Canada. It will attract international-calibre artists in both opera and dance, along with international attention.

I found out about the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts while researching Toronto as part of our preparations for our holiday in Canada in October. It certainly looks like an impressive architectural achievement, and I hope to see it while we’re there. Our return flight home is from Toronto, and we plan to spend a couple of nights there at the end of our stay in Canada. I’ve checked Canadian Opera’s performance schedule and see that there’s a performance of Cosi van Tutti on the evening before we leave. Maybe we’ll get to see that (well, maybe I will; I’m not sure if Carl would be interested).
