Announcement, Industry Listing.

In 2019 we said a fond farewell to a long-time friend, and incredible supporter of the Toronto arts community, Roger D. Moore. Roger's commitment to fostering new opera creation lives on through a generous legacy gift to Tapestry that will help fund our annual creation activities. In recognition of his unprecedented contribution to Canadian opera creation we are pleased to officially announce our newly named Roger D. Moore Creation Fund

Contributions to the Roger D. Moore Creation Fund support Tapestry’s annual $100,000 investment in developing new operas for future world premieres. The Fund includes commissioning fees for composers and librettists, dramaturgy with Tapestry’s development team, and workshops with creative and performing artists to test and strengthen works-in-development.

This season, in addition to the variety of presentations we have offered our patrons, we have continued to develop five new works for future presentation:
- Gould’s Wall
- R.U.R. A Torrent of Light
- Dragon’s Tale
- Of the Sea
- 10 Days in a Madhouse
Every new opera we premiere represents years of investment on the part of the creators. We hope you will consider making an investment of $50, $80, or $120 towards the Roger D. Moore Creation Fund in support of those incredible future works. Every dollar donated between now and June 30th will be doubled by our Board Chair Brian Dawson and will go twice as far to creating the next new Canadian operas to take to the stage.
