All Is Love is a brand new thematically based program celebrating love in all its splendour through the juxtaposition of music of the French Baroque with French 19th and 20th Century repertoire. Opera Atelier invites you to experience a world where Amour - Love itself - propels the action and emotions, for better or for worse, of all of the protagonists.

Featuring tenor Colin Ainsworth, soprano Mireille Asselin, soprano Measha Brueggergosman-Lee, soprano Meghan Lindsay, mezzo-soprano Danielle MacMillan, soprano Cynthia Smithers, bass-baritone Douglas Williams with French tenor Rémy Mathieu making his Opera Atelier début.
