Honeybees at the COC


The Canadian Opera Company is delighted to be part of the ever-growing support of honeybees, Currently we host seven hives onthe roof of our opera house, the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts. Follow the honeybees' progress on Parlando, with visits and posts from beekeeper Fred Davis!

Shall We?

Worker bees do a little dance to communicate with each other to report on pollen findings. They can express to their hive mates how to get to the food as well. See more here!

Worker bees also perform dances to let receiver bees know that foragers have returned with food.

Dancing is "alive" and well at the COC.
