David Goldbloom and Friends

In a series of candid conversations among old friends, David Goldbloom, former Chair of the Stratford Festival Board of Governors and Senior Medical Advisor of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, sits down with some leading advocates and academics to discuss their work and their lives – and maybe to reminisce a little about their youthful misadventures.

In Conversation with Rosalie Abella

Justice Abella retired from the Supreme Court of Canada in 2021 after 16 years on that distinguished bench, the first refugee and first Jewish woman appointed to Canada's highest court. Known internationally for her intellectual rigour, her passion, and her compelling personal story, she is far from done. We will discuss the next steps in her career, her extraordinary journey, and her love of musical theatre. In agreeing to be interviewed at the Forum, she wanted to know which musicals would be staged at the Festival.
