Mamdani Opera Centre
In July of 2005 Calgary Opera took over the old Wesley United Church, converting it into the Calgary Opera Centre. Located in the busy Beltline District, at the corner of 14th Avenue and 7th Street S.W., this beautiful heritage building has taken Calgary Opera to a whole new level offering unprecedented opportunities for Community Connections and Artistic Development. This building has a rich heritage and for many years was a house of worship, a Sunday school, and an important venue for ceremonies that marked the most momentous occasions in thousands of peoples’ lives.
The Mamdani Opera Centre (formerly known as the Arrata Opera Centre) is at the corner of 14th Ave and 7th Street SW and is just north of 17th Avenue. There is no parking available in the lot directly adjacent to the Opera Centre. Three hour “ParkPlus” parking is available on the streets around the Centre. Street parking is free after 6:00 pm. Underground paid parking is available in Mount Royal Village, which is accessed just east of 8th Street on 15th Avenue.
