Join us in celebrating Toronto’s annual Doors Open event! Students from Opera Atelier’s School of Atelier Ballet will be presenting Dance Through Time a FREE special performance for the public. In the historic St. Lawrence Hall (157 King St. E.), students in period costume perform historical dances ranging from Renaissance to Baroque, plus 19th Century Waltzes, Mazurkas, Tarantellas and excerpts from the Romantic ballet. The performance is choreographed by Opera Atelier Founding Co-Artistic Director Jeannette Lajeunesse Zingg, and will feature entertaining and educational commentary from Opera Atelier Founding Co-Artistic Director Marshall Pynkoski.
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. This past December’s holiday installation at Casa Loma, “Mozart’s Magical Castle”, is a prime example of thinking outside the box to find new opportunities and provide new points of engagement for the community.
