Soundstreams: Electric Messiah
A STRIPPED DOWN, SURROUND-SOUND, ELECTO-IMPROV MESSIAH FOR TODAY'S TORONTO
Is it possible to become re-sensitized to this ubiquitous musical masterpiece by taking it apart and putting it back together again? Stripping Handel's music back down to its barest essentials, Electric Messiah enables four singers, accompanied by guitar and electronics, to explore a selection of the work's most popular movements through the lens of their own unique styles and cultural backgrounds.
Staged in the intimate, cabaret-style undergound of Toronto's iconic Drake Hotel, in collaboration with curator Kyle Brenders, dramaturg Ashlie Corcoran and lighting designer Patrick Lavender, Soundstreams’ Electric Messiah will reconnect you to the music of the holiday season in a way that is surprising, fresh, and above all, FUN.
TICKETS: $15 in advance or $20 at the door. Or, buy both Ear Candy concerts for just $25!
