This venue is absolutely stunning. Very clean and the architecture is beautiful. Sometimes it can get quite busy but that is to be expected. All of the performances I have seen were also so amazing and well put together. As with most places in the city, food can get quite expensive but if you anticipate that ahead of time, you... More

We went to see the Nutcracker. This was a top notch performance!! The costume's were beautiful, the lighting, the music everything was so magical!! I would highly recommend. We were able to park under the theatre, a little expensive, but worth it as we didn't have to go outside.

What a fabulous venue the Four Season Centre is! It is even better than the online pictures. Our seats were clean and the chairs comfortable. The performers were top notch and the costumes amazing. Timing was very close to the published schedule. The only negative was the high price at the snack bar. Otherwise, it was a terrific evening.

I attended Manon performed by The National Ballet Of Canada. Was impressed by both the venue and performance. Great sightlines and acoustics make for an enjoyable experience. I have just seen Ballet performances, however would like to return and see an Opera. Highly recommended experience.

We are regular subscribers to the Canadian Opera Company at the Four Seasons and the occasional patron of the Canadian National Ballet at the same venue. I must say the COC has improved tremendously since we joined in the 2001 when the opera was held at the Hummingbird Centre. The Four Seasons Centre is centrally located with excellent restaurants around... More

This is a wonderful venue; pleasing appearance but more importantly wonderful acoustics. We saw Madama Butterfly. We are not opera experts but have been enjoying performances at this venue because of the surtitles and the excellent information made available on the Canadian Opera Company site. Very enjoyable experience.

This was my first visit - and my first Opera. Madama Butterfly. We took the train in and hopped on the subway. The subway goes right in to the building, so couldn't be easier to get to. The building has 5 floors of glass, so prior to the show and during intermission you can look out at the city. The... More

I recently went to go see Cinderella, the ballet in June. I have to say it was a wonderful experience! We sat in the middle orchestra, row H and it was perfect! The seats were very large, much more comfortable than the Royal Alexandria. The people watching at intermission in the lobby and concession area was really fun, and the... More

I spent Saturday afternoon attending the Opera Un Ballo Masqureo (A Masked Ball) at the Four Seasons Center in Toronto. This is one of the three times that I have been to this facility, the other two were for the Nutcracker Ballet and a dress rehearsal of The Barber of Sevillie. This facility is absolutely beautiful with many windows to... More

I went to the Four Seasons for an opera performance (The Masked Ball). Not only was the performance outstanding, the facility is quite beautiful as well. Here are a few key points.... 1. The centre is modern. The lobbies and mezzanines feature lots of open space, sharp lines, and glass. It is a grand space without any feel of a... More
