This is a stunning building with wonderful acoustics to hear the fabulous music and singing of the Canadian Opera Company. We have been season ticket holders for the past 10 years and look forward to every performance. The staff is so helpful, not only at the performances but when dealing with them in the box office. We occasionally have to... More

Everyone should attend this and you will have a great time watching. A young couple who I saw bring Twin boys had suits on... More

This really is an amazing facility Toronto can be proud. The acoustics in the main audtiorium were superior. And lovely clean achtecture which houses opera; ballet and periodically musicals. You can buy tickets direct from the theatre which I would recommend rather than commerical websites which charge almost twice the amount. Me and my family had amazing seats in the... More

We loved the Nutcracker Ballet.. The venue is great, easy in and out.. We had great seats but i have a feeling that anywhere you'd sit, it would be great.. The Nutcracker Ballet was spectacular!!!

I just went to see The Nutcracker at the Four Seasons Centre for Performing Arts. I was impressed that there was so many staff around to direct and assist the public. Even an attendant in the elevator. All the staff we interacted with were pleasant and helpful. The theatre was lovely inside with good views even though we were high... More

Went to the Nutcracker, and had an amazing experience. The theater surprised us with its intimacy, cushiony and comfortable seats and warm atmosphere.

I saw "Romeo and Juliet" performed by the National Ballet of Canada. I sat in the orchestra row F seat 8. I could not see the feet of dancers in some parts of the stage. I would like to sit farther back next time so that I can see the feet throughout. I enjoyed wine before the show and during... More

Let me start by saying, the performers, the opera was great. I have nothing but good things to say about the show. The theater itself is also very nice; however, for a Performing Arts center.... the building lacks elegance. In other places the Arts extend beyond the stage. Opera houses all over the world are a thing of beauty and... More

Whether the Opera is your cup or tea or not, the centre is worth visiting and the ambiance worth experiencing. Great service, very friendly (and chatty) attendants.

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
