Are the High Arts Still Too White?

Are the high arts in Canada still too white? And is that a valid question or an offensive one? We put those questions to our guests from the worlds of opera, ballet and theatre (part of the next installment of our branding series - Yes Logo - on the branding and re-branding of the so-called high arts).

The high arts have long suffered from charges of being elitist, unresponsive to contemporary culture, a little snooty, and, well, quite caucasian...

So how well are they doing at shifting that perspective? And, particularly, how well are they doing when it comes to diversity - both on stage and in their audiences?

Let us know what you think.
