Tapestry Opera

Artistic Director: Michael Hidetoshi Mori

General Manager: Jaime Martino

Tapestry is an international home for creators, developers and performers of new opera: all collaborators in telling stories that surprise, thrill and move audiences. The Tapestry process begins at the annual Composer-Librettist Laboratory where writers and composers are introduced to collaborative creation. Successful partnerships move on to create short operas, ranging in length from 15 – 45 minutes, before full length works are accepted into the Creative Development Program and on to full production. The Youth INside Opera Education Program gives students the opportunity to discover their own stories and engage in the creation of new opera. Our children’s operas, Elijah’s Kite by Camyar Chai & James Rolfe and Get Stuffed by Alexis Diamond & Richard Payne have toured to over 30,000 students across Ontario and have been produced by other companies in Canada and abroad.
