Amazing quality productions that range from straight up orchestra, ABBA concerts, a pairing of second city comedy with a full orchestra to movies with an orchestra soundtrack. A great place to visit when you visit Toronto or just a night out on the town.

Very big and open space. Good seats everywhere. Great sound. Nice design. I've seen the TSO perform here and the sound quality was great.

I was lucky enough to attend handles messiah on Dec 22.2018.I was pleasantly surprised at the performance by the orchestra and its soloists. The sound was great but the seating was what made it fantastic . this place is well designed and o recommend this place as a musical venue where every seat is a good seat.

I am unable to move around easily, but everyone was most helpful so I was able to access my seat easily and enjoyed my visit to the Roy Thompson Hall and was sent into raptures with the beautiful music, singing and dancing during the Salute to Vienna. The wonderful anecdotes of the conductor added so much joy to the overall incredible experience. Thank you for helping me celebrate 2019 on such a high note!

Handel's Messiah Performance this year is amazing. It is a beautiful start for Christmas. The Mendelssohn Choir as usual rose to the occasion. I do not remember the exact names of the soloists, but the Soprano was angelic. The Altogether was deep an commanding, the Bass powerful. Thanks Thompson Hall.
