Drama & Desire at the AGO

The AGO, or Art Gallery of Ontario, has gathered quite a few art masterpieces of the 19th Century as part of Drama and Desire: Artists and the Theatre running until September 26, 2010. To advertise the show they have sent out actors to the streets of Toronto dressed in fashions of long, long ago posing behind a large picture frame.

The AGO says "An art experience unlike any other. Featuring artwork inspired by the theatre, presented “on stage” with live performers, full-scale sets and period lighting. See works by Degas, Delacroix and other masters, from the world’s greatest museums — including the Tate, MoMA, Musee d’Orsay, Louvre and the Met. Be there when the curtain rises."

Toronto has so many great Theatre options including the Toronto Centre for the Arts, Royal Alexandra Theatre, Princess of Wales Theatre, Canon Theatre and the Panasonic Theatre. For discount tickets you can always try the TOtix kiosk at Yonge-Dundas Square.
