Party photos of the week: Opera Atelier Versailles Gala Add to ...

Forget Opera Atelier, this night was all about Michael Wekerle. The new addition to Dragon’s Den, and big Opera Atelier supporter, stole the spotlight at the sixth annual Versailles Gala and brought his fellow Dragons up to the stage while he was at it. Held at the Four Seasons Hotel, the Opera Atelier fundraiser was a tribute to the marriage of Marie Antoinette and King Louis XVI, complete with performances by Chris Enns and Mireille Asselin, who played the happy couple. CBC’s Anne-Marie Mediwake hosted the crowd of Toronto’s most prestigious and devout arts lovers, many of whom spent the night shushing and finger-wagging the younger generation who furiously documented the experience on their mobile phones. The evening raised $200,000 to support the company’s international touring and return to Versailles in France this May. parties@globeandmail.com
