Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts

The Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts is a 2,071-seat theatre. Inaugurated in 2006, the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts is the first building of its kind in Canada – a theatre built specifically for opera and ballet performances with the finest level of acoustics. Full, rear, and side stages, along with large dressing rooms and wardrobe storage, allow for three complete productions to play in intervals. The large, flexible orchestra pit allows for the full range of operatic repertoire, from pieces by Mozart and Handel, to some of the monumental 19th- and 20th-century works, which require an orchestra of over 100 musicians. The ground-breaking space is the permanent home of the Canadian Opera Company and The National Ballet of Canada. Interestingly, the glass façade was custom-designed in Germany and is the first of its kind in North America. The glass staircase in the Isadore and Rosalie Sharp City Room is one of a kind and the longest free-spanning glass staircase in the world.
