Welcome to Loose Tea Music Theatre!

Challenging the Mainstream with Bold New Ways of Presenting Opera and Classical Music

about us


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, and presenting works that challenge the audience and artists to break from tradition and become engaged together in an experience.

Founded in 2013 by director, conductor and stage manager Alaina Viau, Loose Tea has reimagined classic pieces such as Carmen, L’Histoire du Soldat and Charles Gounod’s Faust (renamed Dissociative Me) as modern, multimedia, multidisciplinary works. Loose Tea was invited to perform for the Rhubarb Festival 2016 with Buddies in Bad Times Theatre with Trance Symphony No.5, a Trance/Classical Dance experience of Beethoven’s popular Symphony no.5 with live orchestra and trance DJ.
