Tapestry Opera is seeking a highly-organized administrator to join our team!

The General Administrator​ will play a key role in supporting Tapestry’s artistic projects, marketing objectives, and senior staff, and will be instrumental in keeping the office and the organization running smoothly. You love spreadsheets, making schedules, communicating with artists, and contributing to a fast-paced and creative environment. You thrive as part of a team in a highly collaborative and artist-centred organization committed to creating socially engaged, exciting works of art.

We are looking for a detail-oriented administrator who is able to manage multiple deadlines, keep organized documents, and provide support for senior staff at Tapestry Opera.

Tapestry Opera is a professional theatre and opera producer that is Canada’s most prolific and rigorous commissioner and producer of new opera works. We are driven to not only cultivate new works, but to cultivate new artists and performance practices that positively evolve the genre, tapping into vital and relevant stories and diverse musical traditions as part of our mandate. We are the leading opera company in Canada in performing works by women and artists from diverse backgrounds and believe strongly in progressively reflecting and engaging the world we live in through our works and throughout all of our organizational activities.

Creation begins with multiple collaborations at the Composer-Librettist Laboratory (LibLab), where eight writers and composers are introduced and produce sixteen opera shorts under intense conditions. Successful partnerships may result in commissioning new full length works by Tapestry or by other producers. Evolution exists not only in the content and style of the music and text, but also in performance practice. Tapestry Explorations (Tap:Ex) is Canada’s premiere program for the evolution and advancement of opera performance practice and seeks inspiration from other art forms in both art and popular streams.
