Toronto Consort ORFEO

We cap off this season of celebration with the world’s first great opera, and one of the most moving love stories of all time, Claudio Monteverdi’s masterpiece Orfeo in concert. For this grand finale we have assembled an international team of singers and players, starring the fabulous English tenor Charles Daniels in the title role, and the Montreal-based early brass ensemble La Rose des Vents.

Toronto Consort Fantasticus

As our guest ensemble, The Toronto Consort is proud to present Quicksilver, the hot new ensemble of virtuoso players of early Baroque music. At one of their recent concerts, The New York Times reported that “the audience was on its feet cheering and hooting as if it were at a rock show.” Fantasticus features extravagant music from 17th-century Germany for violins, sackbut, dulcian and continuo, with works by Buxtehude, Bertali, Weckmann and Schmeltzer.
