Armide is a haunting tale about unlikely lovers from two different worlds – he is a Christian knight leading his army to victory in the Crusades, and she is a Muslim warrior princess, fiercely determined to protect her homeland. Their mystical, moving tale has inspired the theme for Opera Atelier’s gala this year, and guests will be enchanted by the sensual charms of Mirage: The 2012 Versailles Gala.
This event, set to be the largest and most spectacular in OA's history, will be held at the Evergreen Brick Works, which The Globe and Mail deemed "a cultural beacon for Torontonians and tourists alike." BlogTO wrote, "The authentic character of the Brick Works could single-handedly put all of Toronto's vanilla banquet halls to shame." This historic site is the perfect landscape for a special event with an artistic flair.
The evening will begin with a cocktail reception, featuring scrumptious hors d'ouevres, an alluring silent auction, and a stunning $20,000 raffle item from Tiffany & Co. Award-winning Chef Neal Noble of Noble Culinary will host a marvelous feast, featuring Moroccan seared beef tenderloin, accompanied by an array of mouth-watering delights. Dazzling performances by OA artists will entertain you, and our live auction will treat you to luxurious items and experiences with acclaimed auctioneer Jay Mandarino.
