2020 Versailles Gala

Join us for a memorable evening out at the chic OMNI King Edward Hotel! Hosted this year by Toronto-based performer, producer and voice over actor Jennifer Walls and CBC’s The Great Canadian Baking Show finalist Colin Asuncion.

Proceeds from the gala are used in support of our education and outreach programs. Opera Atelier is known for its outstanding productions of period opera and ballet, but offstage, we place equal importance on arts education and the development of Canadian talent.*
