Original production by
Alison Wong

Based on Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, Berlioz’s beautiful opera is perfect family fare, complete with love, laughter, and a healthy dose of scheming. The production features a stellar cast of emerging, Toronto-based talent led by music director Natasha Fransblow and stage director Alison Wong. All three performances will be presented in Aki Studio – located in the beautiful, new Daniels Spectrum on Dundas Street East in Regent Park.
