Opera Pub

November 7, 2019 /9:00 pm 11:00 pm

There’s a bar in Toronto where you can hear live opera—for free—with a pint in hand.

Fans of opera and newcomers: This November, come check out the fine singers from the University of Toronto Opera School!
They’ll be presenting excerpts from Mozart’s masterpiece ‘Le Nozze di Figaro’ (you’ll also get a good taste of what’s ahead for AtG with our production of Figaro’s Wedding):
+ The greatest music ever*
+ Real live opera singers**
+ The Musical Stylings of Accompanist and Sartorially Savvy David Eliakis***
+ Cheap Pints! Raffle Prizes! Spaghetti!
+ Other things we simply cannot predict!

Thursday, November 7
at The Amsterdam Bicycle Club
54 The Esplanade, Toronto, ON

***No reservations, arrive early to make sure you get your favorite seat!***

Musical performances begin at 9 pm and wrap by 11 pm. We perform 3 sets of music with breaks in between to refresh your drinks.

1) You can arrive super early and enjoy dinner/drinks before the show (and try to grab seats and a table). Arrive before 8 pm to grab a seat — it’s usually standing-room-only after 8:30 pm.


2) Join us for the late-night set, starting at 10 pm, and ending around 10:30 pm/11 pm. More seats and tables become available at this time.

Running the first Thursday of every month, AtG Opera Pub nights are improvised, wild nights that offer up your favorite beer on tap with a side of operatic arias and ensembles, performed by both established and emerging opera talent. Free admission, discounted pints of beer. It’s the perfect introduction for newbies and a welcome break for opera vets who you want to see something “a little different.”

“Opera Pub brings this most secret of pleasures to astonished newcomers.” The Globe and Mail

“It can all get a little wild”

“[Opera Pub] has the feeling of an after-party when musicians kick back, loosen up and playfully make music with their friends.” http://www.musicaltoronto.org/2016/10/14/against-the-grain-opera-pub-night/
