Have you ever wanted to write a masque? Have you ever wondered about the personal sacrifice that goes into creating a masque masterpiece? Do you even know what a masque is? To find out the answer to all of these questions, join Toronto Masque Theatre for their final salon of the season, and learn what really goes on behind the scenes.
Fresh from the succes of last season’s Arlecchino Allegro, which I thoroughly enjoyed, Artistic Director Nicholas Dénoument and Prima Ballerina Mina Kalishnikova, from the esteemed Gorgonetrevich Corps de Ballet National, will draw on their vast experience to create a masque right before our eyes. The whole thing from scratch: the music, the dance, the scenery, the costumes, the lighting, maybe some poetry. The whole thing. Seriously!
To lend assistance will be, the maestro, Larry Beckwith along with soprano Michele DeBoer, and lutenist, Lucas Harris. The evening will include light snacks, tea, coffee, and a cash bar.
If you’ve yet to attend of Toronto Masque‘s salons, I cannot recommend them enough. For an evening of quality music, humour, and much more, I encourage you to come out next Monday night!
