Attended this excellent classical opera, first performed in Paris in December, 1693. Wonderful music, sets, and costumes by a thoroughly professional cast; in the best traditions of the performances that Opera Atelier specializes in. Well worth the visit!

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University

flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
