I just attended the Toronto Symphony's performance of Mahler's 2nd Symphony. Complete with chorus and extra brass and woodwinds it was a great performance. Peter Oundjuin conducting was outstanding. The sound in the hall was terrific and there isn't a bad seat anywhere.

This interesting looking concert hall was recently renovated to improve the acoustics. TSO performances are frequent, including an annual presentation of Handel's Messiah which was my last trip there. To attend on the cheap, sit in the choir loft. You hear everything and despite the "cheap seats" you get a great view of the performers.

I had not been to RTH for several years, and found it confusing at first to find my way to my seat. However, after the first time, it was quite logical, although there are lots of stairs. It reflects the era when ease of access was less important when designing public spaces. I attended one of a series of concerts... More

We attended an orchestra event and were very pleased with the parking nearby, the beauty of the auditorium and our seats. The place itself is not very accessible, there are stairs everywhere. We found that there are employees at every turn to help visitors navigate the hall to their seats. You are only allowed to enter between performances, which is... More

We went there for the Bill Maher show, which was awesome. Parking under the building was convenient, but slow to exit, so next time, we'll grab a drink before we head out. Seats were at a funny angle, and not much leg and foot room. Both of us felt achy after the show was over. The bars had slow lines... More

Attended: March 13, 2015 My wife and I went to RTH to see Glenn Miller to celebrate our anniversary. I guess this review should be more about the theatre than the show. The staff were helpful and courteous, especially considering that so many of the audience were quite old and often physically challenged. The venue was well lit, clean and... More

We had given my inlaws a Christmas gift of tickets to see Glenn Miller Orchestra and got a pair for ourselves. I think it was a bargain for all of us. The orchestra numbered about 18 people and put out the sound of about 50! Right from the first few notes, the sound was tight and perfect. One hit after... More

Saw Beethoven symphony orchestra also other performances that were all very nice. sound is excellent in theater and nice looking venue I guess, though seating, in cheap seat of $33, personally for someone who is slim and 5"10 was beyond tight. I found myself very uncomfortable in these seats,though tried my best to overlook it and enjoy the show anyway.... More

If you are an AMX card holder use their private lounge for snacks and drinks before the show. Stunning facility. I love going to this place to watch shows. The Ritz Carlton is right across the street. Great place to catch and bite and drink before or after the show. Park underground for the best parking and prices.
