Today in Toronto: Summerworks, Bicycle Opera, Queer West Fest, Mosaic, Kultura, United Nations, OBGM
Today in Toronto the SummerWorks Performance Festival (August 7-17) begins with an overwhelming program of stellar theatre, comedy, music, art, and more. Check out our full preview here for the lowdown on what to see including a production by Unintentionally Depressing Children's Tales and more.
A gang of quirky opera singers are touring the country by bike, and you can catch them at Heliconian Hall (one of our top picks for under-the-radar classical music venues). Stop by Steel Bananas' fiction and artist book launch featuring live readings and Jasmyn Burke (Weaves) playing music for you as STRANDS. Check out art openings at Huntclub, OnlyOne, and Cooper Cole.
