Tapestry Opera



Founded in 1979, Tapestry Opera is an award-winning Toronto-based company dedicated to creating, developing and performing original, progressive opera. We are passionate about timely, resonant stories told in innovative settings and interpreted by extraordinary artists. We create space to unite diverse art forms, creators, and communities to develop powerful, boundary-breaking opera that reflects and changes the world. We believe in embedding our values in everything we do, on and offstage, and work to create a flexible, adaptable, and accountable culture for our time and communities.


Tapestry Opera’s Box Concerts series offers 30-minute musical performances presented throughout the GTA on a travelling stage. For the past four summers, Box Concerts has delivered live music performances in long-term care homes, neighbourhoods, and other outdoor community spaces.

This short video we produced for World Opera Day 2023 gives an overview of the origins and impact of this unique concert series:

The first week of the engagement is for Box Stage prep. The incoming PC will have the opportunity to shadow the outgoing PC in the first week of the series, learning from their experiences over the last 4 years before taking the reins solo (this accounts for the 1/2 week).

– Ongoing maintenance of rented audio equipment and the Box Stage as required.
– Call key contact at Long Term Care Homes, Private Bookings, etc. on the day of the event, no later than 1 hour in advance of the concert to confirm details, particularly where there are inclement weather or Air Quality Index concerns.
– One drive by each location the morning of the concerts to ensure a smooth setup, as possible or necessary.
– Weekly Reports – template to be provided: Approx. attendance numbers/audience reception highlights, challenges that arose (technical, Box Stage, communication, etc.), and other key learnings.

At the end of the final week of the series, the Production Coordinator will:
– Remove and return rental equipment to Long & McQuade.
