Stage Series

Music Theatre Dance Summer events

Take a seat in Southam Hall and experience beloved classics performed by the NAC Orchestra or your favourite artists. Visit the Babs Asper Theatre for some outstanding dance and music. Or, if you prefer something more intimate, settle into either the Studio or the Fourth Stage for theatre and music. There you can connect with Canadian, Indigenous and international artists and ensembles as they share their history, truth and powerful points of view. 

You won’t be disappointed, no matter what you see.
