Opera and Contemporary ArtBy COC StaffPosted in Key Change
Toronto, as a city, is an incredible cultural hub, home to countless creators and artistic organizations. In typical times, this has led to a dynamic, creative ecosystem but, throughout the pandemic, that sense of solidarity and partnership has deepened across the arts and culture sector. Continued collaboration has helped keep us all connected to our art forms and to each other.

A spring update on COC’s Opera Makers programming for students
The incredible thing about opera is that there are so many ways to enter into and participate in this highly collaborative art form. At its core, opera is really about storytelling – whether that’s through music, poetry, visual art and design, or movement, all those elements are collaborating to communicate a story about the reality of some shared human experience.

Beyond the composer’s score and librettist’s story, it takes a visionary creative team, using imaginative set and costume design, to produce an immersive world for the audience to get lost in.
