- [August] 1988
Photographs of the winning design for the 1987 competition to design a combined opera and ballet performance space for the National Ballet of Canada and the Canadian Opera Company. A plot of land at the corner of Bay and Wellesley Streets in Toronto was donated by Ontario Premier Bill Davis and the buildings were demolished. In 1992, the new Premier Bob Rae cancelled the project due to excessive cost. The land was sold to commerical developers. The 'Opera Place' condominiums now occupy the location. In 2002 a new competition was launched with substantial funding from the Four Seasons hotel chain, and the house opened with a more modest design based on European opera houses in 2006 at the corner of Queen Street and University Avenue.
