We are certainly not deluding ourselves by suggesting that the opera is suddenly gratis. However, there are a series of free concerts in the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre from September to May in jazz, piano, vocal, dance, chamber and world music categories. Walking into the Canadian Opera Company and viewing the majestic staircases and grandiose ceilings, it will be hard to believe that you have paid nothing for a fine arts experience. This is Canada's first and only custom built opera house, and the acoustics prove it, even in the smaller amphitheatre. Check the website for the free schedule, normally held from Tuesday to Thursday.
- Free Things to Do: "Admission is on a first-come first served basis. Join the lineup early if you want to get in on some free entertainment, as you certainly won't be the only one."
- Romantic Things to Do: "If you are under 30, this can be an very inexpensive date with a fancy tone. Tickets for under 30s can be as low as $22. If you are unlucky enough to be as elderly as 31, you are not out of luck. There is a free concert series, with vocal, instrumental and dance performances at lunchtime on many weekdays."
