2019 Versailles Gala

The Versailles Gala is Opera Atelier’s biggest and most lavish annual fundraising event. Join Toronto’s cultural movers-and-shakers for an evening of performances, dinner, and live and silent auctions.

Funds raised will be used to support Opera Atelier’s international touring, as well as Opera Atelier’s education and outreach programs, which have been offered free of charge since the company’s inception.

Items from the silent auction are available to bid online, even if you can’t attend! We have some exciting items and packages up for grabs. But hurry – you only have until 12pm on May 29 to bid online!

The online portion of the silent auction will close at 12pm on May 29, 2019. The live portion of the Silent Auction will close at 9:45 pm on May 30, 2019. If someone bids online but is not attending the event and that bid remains the top bid, they will still win that item.

Follow us on Facebook and on Twitter @OperaAtelier #OAGala for the latest gala news.
