Cantrell: Toronto Opera House Gets It Right

Toonto’s new opera house is a gem, writes Scott Cantrell. “Architecturally, the Four Seasons is generic modernism understated to a fault. But an inaugural Canadian Opera Company production of Wagner’s complete Ring of the Nibelung this month showed off well-nigh ideal acoustics for opera: almost eerily transparent but also spacious, with an even frequency response and a good balance between stage and pit.”
