Angel is a multi-disciplinary storytelling event that explores the mythology surrounding mankind’s loss of innocence and subsequent enlightenment plus the creation of Lucifer as the first great anti-hero.
Based on the mystic poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke, and John Milton’s Paradise Lost, Angel marks the culmination of OA’s commission for new music for baroque instruments by Canadian composer Edwin HUIZINGA - created over the past 4 years and featured in performances in Toronto, Chicago, and Versailles.
Angel will also showcase musical excerpts by Jean-Phillipe Rameau, Matthew Locke, William Boyce, and Max Richter’s Recomposed by Max Richter: Vivaldi’s The Fours Seasons*.
Featuring Colin AINSWORTH, Mireille ASSELIN, Measha BRUEGGERGOSMAN, Jesse BLUMBERG, Meghan LINDSAY, John TIBBETTS, and Douglas WILLIAMS, Angel will also showcase the Artists of Atelier Ballet, members of Tafelmusik, Elisa CITTERIO, Music Director, and Brainerd BLYDEN-TAYLOR with The Nathaniel Dett Chorale.
