Hummingbird Centre for the Performing Arts
Hummingbird Centre for the Performing Arts is Canada's premier performance venue and an historical and cultural landmark in Toronto. As Toronto's only mainstream civic theatre in the heart of the downtown entertainment district, it is the largest performing arts venue in Canada with a capacity of 3,200 seats, and is operated for the benefit of the people of Toronto and the continuation of cultural diversity and entertainment excellence in Canada. The Hummingbird Centre has a glorious and prestigious history from its opening in 1960 with Richard Burton and Julie Andrews in Camelot to current day presentations as diverse as Charles Aznavour, Celine Dion, Bjork, Burn the Floor, Riverdance, Franklin's Big Adventure, the Mozart Orchestra, the Shaolin Warriors, Luther VanDross, Gigi D'Alessio and 'Karma — The Show'. The Hummingbird Centre is the proud home to the National Ballet of Canada and the Canadian Opera Company who present over 80 performances each year on our stage. The Centre also continues its dedication to programming for families and young audiences by bringing quality children's shows to the theatre each season. With Broadway musicals, comedy, fundraisers, speakers and concerts, the Hummingbird Centre's objective is to be relevant to Toronto's increasingly diverse population as well as appeal to visitors from across the border and around the world. Whether you are looking for tickets to a performance, doing research, or merely browsing for personal interest, welcome to our Website! We look forward to welcoming you to the Centre in the near future.
