Angel is a commission of original music exploring themes of creation, loss of innocence and enlightenment.
Angel is a multi-disciplinary storytelling event that explores themes of creation, loss of innocence, isolation and redemption through the texts of John Milton's Paradise Lost and the mystic poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke.
Marking the culmination of OA’s commission for new music for baroque instruments by Canadian composer Edwin HUIZINGA with Christopher BAGAN - created over the past 4 years and featured in performances in Toronto, Chicago, and Versailles - Angel will also showcase musical excerpts by Matthew Locke, William Boyce, and Max Richter’s Recomposed by Max Richter: Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons*.
Featuring Colin AINSWORTH, Mireille ASSELIN, Measha BRUEGGERGOSMAN, Jesse BLUMBERG, Meghan LINDSAY, John TIBBETTS, and Douglas WILLIAMS with the Artists of Atelier Ballet, members of Tafelmusik, (Elisa CITTERIO, Music Director) and D. Brainerd BLYDEN-TAYLOR with The Nathaniel Dett Chorale.
Angel is dedicated to the memory of Jeanne Lamon, C.M., O. Ont., D. Litt. (1949 - 2021), Tafelmusik’s longtime Music Director and Music Director Emerita, and Opera Atelier’s beloved friend, treasured colleague and collaborator for more than 35 years.
