2019 Versailles Gala

Thank you to all the incredible support for our 2019 Versailles Gala. Over 200 of Toronto’s cultural movers-and-shakers came out to enjoy a very special evening of performances, dinner, and live and silent auctions.

Our event on May 30, 2019 raised over $174,000 which will help sustain and expand our education and outreach programs, which have been offered free of charge since the company’s inception.

Thank you to all our supporters!

Information on our 2020 Versailles Gala (spring 2020) will be available soon.
Follow us on Facebook and on Twitter @OperaAtelier #OAGala for the latest gala news.
