We Got to Play Dress-Up with the Finalists from COC’s Newest Event, Centre Stage

The Canadian Opera Company has scoured the nation for our best operatic talents. Their search culminates tonight when the nine finalists compete in the third annual COC Ensemble Studio Competition. The gala kicks off Centre Stage, the COC annual fundraising campaign, and is dedicated to the discovery of the next Canadian opera stars.

Hosted by Canadian musical icon Rufus Wainwright, this event will take place on the main stage of the Four Seasons Centre with the full COC orchestra. COC General Director Alexander Neef heads the competition jury and will be announcing the winner at event’s conclusion.

The competition takes place November 26th at 6:30pm in R. Fraser Elliott Hall at the Four Season’s Centre (145 Queen St. W.). Tickets are $100 and patrons who attend the Ensemble Studio Competition as part of Centre Stage will enjoy a pre-gala cocktail celebration in the Four Seasons Isadore and Rosalie Sharp City Room.

But first, check out this super-fun video that we made while playing dress-up in the swanky personal styling suites at The Hudson’s Bay. What did the gorgeous finalists pick to wear for their big night? FIND OUT RIGHT NOW
