About Us

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 our support and development of diverse creators and new works we are actively addressing the systemic issues that have been inherited by the art form. We seek to create an anti-racist, compassionate and accessible environment for our teams and audiences. We centre our creation in addressing critical social issues, the telling of diverse stories of all people who live one this land and giving a voice to new type of opera expression.

Loose Tea Music Theatre is a not-for-profit, registered charity.
