Loose Tea Music Theatre is a not-for-profit, charitable music theatre company that specializes in classical music productions, taking an innovative approach to develop and stretch perceptions of the theatre and concert-going experience. Loose Tea presents works that challenge the audience and artists to break from tradition and become engaged together in an experience.
Founded by Director and Creator Alaina Viau in 2013, Loose Tea is changing the face of opera. The 2019-20 season saw the company premiere two new unconventional operas, receive its first DORA nominations for “Singing Only Softly,” and the appointment of Joanna Diindiisikwe Simmons as Artistic Director. Through the support and development of diverse creators and new works, they are actively addressing the systemic issues that have been inherited by the art form. They seek to create an anti-racist, compassionate, and accessible environment for our teams and audiences. They center their creation in addressing critical social issues, the telling of diverse stories of all people who live on this land, and giving a voice to a new type of opera expression.
