Canadian Opera Company ★★★[em]Performances take place in downtown Toronto at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts, Canada’s first purpose-built opera house, which opened in 2006. Special $22 tickets for the under-30 crowd and discounted rush tickets are available, subject to availability. Visitors can also drop in to the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre for one of the 70-plus free concerts offered annually. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow for a spectacular view of the bustling city core. Regular building tours also offer backstage access, fascinating insight into the building’s brilliant acoustic design, and a chance to snap some shareable selfies against the modern architectural backdrop.
