Save the date! May 19th marks the Canadian Opera Company’s 12th annual Operanation: Queen of the Night. As the city’s premier fundraiser for the arts and opera, the event aims to bring Torontonians together for the biggest opera party in all of North America.
Grab your darkest hued, leather and lace clothing because one of the biggest parties of the year is just around the corner! The Canadian Opera Company (COC) will be holding their 12th annual Operanation at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts on Thursday, May 19th.
This year, Operanation will have guests living (or at least looking,) like villains for a charitable cause. The theme takes inspiration from one of opera’s most notable villains, the Queen of the Night from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s The Magic Flute.
The night will include a spectacular performance by the Canadian electro-pop band, Dragonette. Alongside musical performances, guests will also have the opportunity to rub elbows with some of Toronto’s finest, nibble on yummy hors d’oeuvres, sip on delicious cocktails, take in one-of-a-kind art installations, a massive chocolate display, and much, much more.
Tickets are on sale now for $150, with all of the proceeds going to COC’s Ensemble Studio, the nation’s premier training centre for young Canadian opera artists. Grab your tickets here and some outfit inspiration here.
