Enchanted April

WWI is over but a gloom still hangs over London. Lotty and Rose are two housewives who need some enchantment in their lives. Impulsively, Lotty answers an ad in the paper that reads, “Small castle on the Mediterranean, Northern Italy. To be let for April. Cook, gardens, ocean view.” And so their adventure begins. Recruiting two other women in need of escape, they dive into the experience of a lifetime, rediscovering themselves among the wine, wisteria and sunshine in a play that is timeless, funny and joyfully restorative.

Toronto’s newest and tallest attraction has adventure lovers taking a walk OUTSIDE – around the circumference of the roof! So, do you dare to test your limits and experience the thrill of a lifetime?

EdgeWalk is CN Tower’s most thrilling attraction in its 35 year history, and the first of its kind in North America.

Visitors walk in groups of six, while attached to an overhead safety rail via a trolley and harness system. Trained EdgeWalk guides will encourage participants to push their personal limits, allowing them to lean back over Toronto with nothing but air and breathtaking views of Lake Ontario beneath them.

Peter Grimes

Ben Heppner embodies one of the most iconic roles in 20th-century opera.

After the moral catastrophe of World War II, Benjamin Britten held up a mirror to English life as no other composer has, before or since. Britten earned his reputation – and wrote arguably the best opera of the 20th century – with this gripping psychological study of a village by the sea. His evocative music personifies the unrelenting power and loneliness of the ocean, and reveals the life of an alienated fisherman with spellbinding drama.

Performance time is approximately three hours and 15 minutes including two intermissions.
Sung in English with English SURTITLES™.

Toronto Symphony Orchestra

Our Betters

If this play were a personal ad, it would read: rich American women in search of nobility seeking poor British men with titles – a forerunner of Downton Abbey? When American Bessie Saunders comes to London, she is thrust into the world of women of wealth and men of status. The games, the lies, the affairs – what she hears and witnesses, particularly in the garden house of her older sister Pearl, is a mercilessly funny look at Europe’s smart set. Sexy, stylish, provocative and very funny – writer and critic Graham Greene called it “the best social comedy of this century.”
