Arts & Performing Arts Culture, Heritage & Arts

There’s live art and theatre year-round in Alberta. The province's stages celebrate homegrown talent and showcase world-class performances. • Theatre: In the big cities, expect top-notch productions across genres. Even in smaller centres, community theatre is alive and kickin'. • Classics, but not: See cheeky Cowtown Opera perform on the banks of the Bow River in downtown Calgary. It's opera that's totally approachable. Or listen to the Edmonton and Calgary orchestras do pop music and Tchaikovsky with equal grandeur. • Pro tip: Seek out an art opening or book reading for free cheese and wine with your local artist experience.
