Operanation VII, Cinderella: Rock the Ball, presented by TD Canada Trust, is the Canadian Opera Companyâ€™s premier event for young urban professionals, melding the inspirational venue of the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts with the must-attend arts fundraiser of the fall social season.
On Friday, Oct. 29, 2010, Operanation VII will celebrate the worldâ€™s most-beloved fairytale, Cinderella, which is the inspiration for Rossiniâ€™s opera, La Cenerentola, appearing onstage during the COCâ€™s 2010/2011 season. The event will take a very modern spin on the traditional Opera Ball and feature an incredible live performance by Broken Social Scene alongside the COCâ€™s up-and-coming opera stars. To boot, a very special performance by Clara Venice will be unveiled when the clock strikes 12. Journey from rags-to-riches in one night, and live happily ever after at the best bash of the year!
At Operanation VII, Cinderella: Rock the Ball party-goers will indulge in a spectacular array of the finest cuisine and cocktails, and enjoy live entertainment, dancing and much more. For $150 a ticket, 1,100 of Torontoâ€™s young urban elite will mix, mingle and rock the night away in operatic proportions.
