Brushing It In the Rough: Women, Art & Nineteenth-century Canada

Continuing to highlight its strong Canadiana collection, the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) presents Brushing It In the Rough: Women, Art & Nineteenth-century Canada. This intimate display showcases the pictorial responses of three nineteenth-century women – Anna Jameson, a traveler; Susanna Moodie, a settler; and Alice Killaly, a native-born resident – to their Canadian experiences. Each woman produced art within society’s parameters and their stories reveal the circumstances behind the use of their talents for financial gain. Augmenting the earlier works, the art of Ruth Abernethy provides a contemporary lens onto the role of women in settler society. The exhibit’s 23 works are displayed from Saturday, August 24, 2013 to Monday, February 17, 2014 in the Wilson Canadian Heritage Exhibition Room of the Sigmund Samuel Gallery of Canada, located on Level 1 of the ROM’s Weston Family Wing.

Obsessed with online gaming, a boy refuses to respond to his parents’ concerns regarding the countless hours he spends in a make-believe world.

Così fan tutte

Atom Egoyan explores love, fidelity and the frailties of the human condition.

Celebrated director Atom Egoyan returns to the COC, bringing his signature style to this wry comedy about two couples gambling with faith and desire. Featuring a cast of exciting young opera stars and distinguished, seasoned veterans, this work is full of both farce and folly. Yet Mozart’s sublime musical depiction of the honest and intimate struggles of love and temptation is truly one of the greatest pieces about relationships ever written.

Performance time is approximately three hours, 5 minutes including one intermission.
Sung in Italian with English SURTITLES™.
