On May 16, we’re transforming the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts into a glass palace with delicious eats and interactive art installations — and since this year’s Operanation party is inspired by fairytales, we couldn’t pass up the chance to combine the two and build a candy house with a façade that you can actually eat.
Partying for a Cause: Meet the Young Philanthropists Behind Operanation
By COC Staff
Every spring, the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts lets loose and parties for a cause with one of the biggest fundraisers in Toronto: Operanation. Proceeds from the annual gala dinner and reception go directly to the Canadian Opera Company’s Ensemble Studio training program that provides the brightest young artists from across the country with access to a comprehensive spectrum of vocal, language, dramatic, and other training. 2019 marks Operanation’s 15th year and organizers are promising a magical night, a nod to the company’s 2019/2020 season of fantastical fairy tales.
Michael Greaves and Odessa Paloma Parker are Operanation co-chairs who each have their own story to tell about how they discovered opera and why they’re so passionate about supporting the arts and education.
