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

Yesterday (December 31st) me and my husband and two our granddaughters (6&8 y.o.) visited Four Seasons Center for Performance Arts in Toronto for the Nutcracker ballet. Our tickets were at the first row of the fifth ring. When we got to our seats I was struck by how unsafe these seats are! The guardrail is hardly 70 centimetres of height... More

Went to a performance of The Nutcracker. The performance hall is beautifully designed both aesthetically and acoustically. There really isn't a bad seat. The production and set designs of The Nutcracker were very well done. A very enjoyable afternoon.

Three weeks ago, on Wednesday evening October 30, I had a very enjoyable evening. I attended a wonderful performance of the opera "La Boheme", performed at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The music was rich, with very melodious arias. I recognized some of them, which are probably well-known to many people. I heard... More

This building is incredible! With a beautiful exterior with floor to ceiling glass walls it is just stunning. The accoustics are amazing and inside the theatre is just as beautiful as the exterior. The only downside for me was the seats I had were very uncomfortable to watch a stage production from. We were in the grand ring but on... More

There are no bad seats in this theatre and the acoustics are superb. The performance of Lucia Di Lammermoor was outstanding with excellent singing, acting and orchestration. It was a memorable performance in a great opera house which is equal or superior to many older opera houses in Europe.

This is Toronto’s newest big theatre — the home to Toronto Opera (the C.O.C.) and Toronto Ballet (the National). As a theatre, it is technically excellent and so much better in facilities to stage a performance than any of its predecessors. The acoustics are superb, the seating is comfortable and there is usually good ventilation. The lobby is very good... More
