Dare to climb the wall?

A young, extraordinarily talented musician is striving for perfection in her art. Her path to greatness? A magnificent wall.

Bursting with the compulsion to reach the top, she invokes Canadian icon, classical pianist Glenn Gould to guide her towards dizzying heights – but the path isn’t easy. Each brick represents her art, her rigour, and her challenge. Does she have the strength, or will she slip and fall into the abyss?

Artists climb and perform suspended from The Royal Conservatory’s atrium in this daring new opera, which connects the wall’s historic past to the present in a thrilling staging that transcends gravity.

Award-winning theatre artist and librettist Liza Balkan evokes the young artist’s rigorous journey, weaving many of Gould’s own words into the libretto, and acclaimed Canadian composer Brian Current delivers a thrilling, kinetic score. Gould’s Wall is directed by multiple Dora Award-winning Philip Akin, and features The Glenn Gould School’s New Music Ensemble.

Note that Regular seats for Gould’s Wall will be positioned on the floor and angled to allow viewing up the Atrium wall.
