This celebratory event also marks the 10th anniversary of OA's first production of this work, and will feature baritone Daniel Belcher in the title role. Other performers in this production include Colin Ainsworth, Olivier Laquerre, Stephanie Novacek, Jennie Such, Curtis Sullivan, Monica Whicher, Matthew White and the Artists of Atelier Ballet, with the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir, all under the direction of David Fallis (April 15, 18, 20, 22, 23). With lute and ud The Toronto Consort makes a musical pilgrimage to Santiago (April 28, 29), the famous town in northern Spain where, even today, thousands of pilgrims flock every year. In medieval times, Santiago was just as much a magnet, and as they walked along the road to the shrine, the pilgrims enlivened their travel with songs and dances. With lute and ud, with hurdygurdy and pipe, with voice and drum, the Consort takes you on a very unique musical journey through medieval Europe. Website: www Frank T.
