About Community Partnerships

Opera Atelier partners with several organizations across the GTA, both on an ongoing and per-project basis. Organizations with whom we have recently partnered on outreach initiatives include First Canadian Place, the Booklover’s Ball, Amnesty International, Canada Blooms and Doors Open Toronto.

Opera Atelier continually seeks out new ways to interact with and engage our community at large. If you are interested in showcasing Opera Atelier, or know of an outreach opportunity that would benefit from an Opera Atelier performance, please email Claire Lucht at claire.lucht@operaatelier.com.
