We see a world
where music thrives
beyond charted

Astrolabe Musik Theatre creates compelling, multi-disciplinary works, frequently performed in site-specific/alternative venues, by pushing traditional boundaries of classical vocal music.
By imaginatively reinterpreting established repertoire and creating original work, we create cultural connections, reach out to diverse communities and foster active audience engagement. Particularly passionate about Canadian creators and performers, Astrolabe is dedicated to creating, commissioning, and performing works by Canadian artists.

Through performance
we innovate,
create and collaborate
to engage, challenge,
enrich and inspire.

What is an Astrolabe?
Astrolabe: (from the Greek; “star-taker”): A historical navigational instrument used to explore uncharted territory by mapping the stars. Lab: A room or building for experimentation.
