The center is the home of the Canadian Opera Company (COC) and the National Ballet of Canada. It was opened in 2006 and can seat just over 2,000 people. The shape of the theater, the proximity of the seats to the stage, the beautiful stacked layout of the seating area, the texture and material off the interior decor, and the incredible Acoustics design has led to the performance hall here being labeled as one of the best in the world. The two facades - East and West - sharply contrast each other, but are striking too, the former quite intimidating, the later quite inviting.

You have to appreciate the modern aesthetics of their theatre while they also using what worked so well for the traditional style. You could hear the actor walking on stage from the farthest back balcony. You can't bring your cups into the theatre so be careful when you buy your drinks.
Nice new building for performance arts in Toronto. Went for a free concert on Oct 28th. A soprano and a percussionist was featured. It was quite confronting to see the percussionist practically beat herself up during the performance. Basically making percussion some kind of weirdass performance art with vocal sounds as well. Not my cuppa tea and I was actually quite bored whenever she came on.
I've been here a couple of times this year, once to see COC's The Nightingale and once to see COC's Hadrian. This building is absolutely gorgeous. My experience was made even better by the fact that Hadrian was phenomenally mesmerizing, but that takes nothing away from the stunning beauty of the architecture. I've had seats in Ring 3 and Ring 4. Both sections afford good views of the stage. I had no problems reading the surtitles and was still able to enjoy the costumes and set designs. The acoustics are excellent and the seats are comfortable. Don't drive there. The Centre has direct access to Osgoode Station, so it makes transit access too convenient to bother with a car. I'm a member of nearby University Club, so dining before the show is easy. The Four Seasons seems to have great access to everything for a fantastic night out. I can't wait to be back for The Nutcracker later this year!
What a beautiful place. The outside is a bit drab but the inside takes your breath away and makes you feel welcome which is great when you're there to see a show, you want to be comfortable which the seating is and you want to enjoy the overall experience which we did.
Always so special, mesmerising and has a beauty of its own. Good sound system too.
