Toronto life leaving your wallet light? Opera Under 30 offers $22 tickets to anyone between 16 and 29 and is a great night out for less than a pair of cocktails.
This includes show admission, a free pre-show chat where you can brush up on what you’re about to watch, and time to explore the glass-encased jewel that is the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts.
Feeling splurgy? For $35, opt for Opera Under 30 Plus tickets and we’ll move you into the best available seats, the night of your performance.
AND – while ticket buyers must be under 30, you’re welcome to bring a guest of any age and share the love for the same sweet price.
Trust us when we say: you just have to experience it first-hand. (Just ask these guys!)

A Night of Voices
Glam up your social game with $35 tickets to Centre Stage.
Enjoy a pre-show cocktail reception with open bar and light snacks and then witness the main event: fiercely good singers showing off their stuff.
The stakes couldn't be higher as young artists compete for cash prizes, a chance to perform at the Elora Festival, and a CBC Music recording session.
Our eight finalists are also in line for the opportunity to be invited to join the prestigious Ensemble Studio training program – a major stepping stone in an opera career on the stage.
(Oh, and did we mention we need your help to pick the fan favourite with the Audience Choice Award? Don't miss out!)
