COC Holiday Gift Guide

The holiday season approaches! Do you still have some gift shopping to do? Here are a few suggestions of operatically themed gifts for the aficionado in your life.

1. COC Gift Certificate

The most versatile gift of all! COC gift certificates can be purchased from the comfort of your own home and printed from your own computer for any denomination you wish. The recipient can pick their own opera and performance date to attend. Whether they want to use it on Tristan und Isolde or Salome, or even at the opera shop, the choice is theirs. Purchase a gift certificate here

2. See your favourite Ensemble Studio members in La clemenza di Tito!

On Wednesday, February 6, 2013, the COC's Ensemble Studio will take to the Four Seasons Centre stage to perform La clemenza di Tito. See your favourite Ensemble Studio members in feature roles on the mainstage. Tickets for this performance range from $25 to $55 for this night only.

3. Opera Glasses

Always a favourite for the opera fan in your life, the COC offers a variety of opera glasses in several different styles ranging from $49 to $59. View our gallery of selected styles here and purchase your pair online

4. Opera Music

What are the holidays without a little music? The online COC Opera Shop carries a variety of CDs and DVDs of upcoming performances at the Four Seasons Centre. May we recommend a DVD of La clemenza di Tito with the Vienna Philharmonic and Vienna State Opera Chorus, or a three-CD set of the Dresden Staatskapelle Orchestra and the Leipzig Radio Chorus performing Tristan und Isolde? View the online Opera Shop for more CDs and DVDs

5. Alexander Neef Recommends

Every month our General Director Alexander Neef chooses a selection of music that he's enjoying from the Universal classics label. From Strauss to Keith Jarrett, cover all your bases with one of his selections. You can view his recommendations here and purchase his selections from L'Atelier Grigorian.

Whether you buy anything for others or for yourself, have a happy holiday!

P.S. The Opera Bear is currently sold out but will be in stock for the Winter run!
