Here comes the jackpot question in advance.

What are you doing New Year's Eve?

Looking for a glamorous way to start your New Year’s Eve festivities? For more than 10 years, Bravissimo! Opera’s Greatest Hits has been Toronto’s classiest New Year’s Eve celebration.


Four world-class international opera stars take the stage with Opera Canada Symphony and Chorus.


Brimming with arias, choruses, and duets from Turandot, La traviata, Rigoletto, Magic Flute, and more, each as everlasting as the tradition of New Year’s Eve, this concert is a romantic, sophisticated start to the evening’s festivities.


The final bows will usher you out before 10pm, to send you on your way before the clock strikes midnight!
