Opera Atelier is set to partner with Mirvish Productions for its two productions during the 2019 season.
One of the productions will be Mozart’s “Idomeneo” while the latter is still unannounced. “Idomeneo” is slated for performances at the Ed Mirvish Theatre between April 4 and 13, 2019.
“David Mirvish is a true visionary and his commitment to the Toronto theatre scene is exceptional,” stated Marshall Pynkoski, one of the co-artistic directors of Opera Atelier. “Commercial success is only a part of David’s equation as a producer. He is equally passionate about innovation and excellence. We look forward to this new development in Opera Atelier’s history, as we continue to grow our brand nationally and internationally.“
David Mirvish, who owns and operates the Ed Mirvish Theatre has collaborated with Opera Atelier since the late 1990s when he helped the company grow its community and audience at the Royal Alexandra Theatre, which he also owns and operates. That helped the company forge its own path and a move to the Elgin Theatre, which is its current home since 1999.
Meanwhile, the company is gearing up for its 2018-19 season, which will feature Charpentier’s “Actéon” and Rameau’s “Pygmalion” in a double bill this October.
