See you in October, 2022!

Well folks, we can easily say the return of Opera Pub, post-pandemic, was a riot!

Thank you to all who showed up to hoot, holler, sing-along, and support our return to live music-making. 

We’re all partied out for now but never fear, Opera Pubs will resume in October. Stay tuned for some exciting announcements regarding Opera Pub!

About Opera Pub

AtG’s Opera Pubs are improvised, wild nights that offer up your favourite operatic arias and ensembles, performed by both established and emerging opera talent hosted by the extraordinary David Eliakis. Opera Pubs are the perfect introduction for newbies and a welcome break for opera vets who want to see something “a little different.” What’s more fun than opera and a beer with friends?

Time & Place

Opera pubs have a new(ish) home at Tranzac Club (292 Brunswick Ave, Toronto)! Just a block away from either Spadina or Bathurst Station.

They usually happen once a month on Thursday evenings, starting at 8 pm.

We’re Serious About Your Safety

Seriously. The venue will be following all provincial guidelines including a reduced capacity to make sure everyone feels comfortable at the event.

Questions? Send us a note and we’ll get back to you ASAP.
