Description

In the Court of Versailles
October 26, 2019 - 3pm & 8pm

An evening to celebrate the glory of Louis XIV and the greatest royal court of the 17th-Century.

Marc-Antoine Chapentier’s opera Les plaisirs de Versailles (The Pleasures of Versailles) premiered in 1682 at the exclusive Les appartements du roi (King’s Receptions). In it the characters “Music”, “Gambling”, “Pleasure” and “Conversation” praise the King and help him relax after coming back from his wars. Jean-Baptiste Lully’s earlier 1657 ballet L’amour malade (Love Illness) features Louis as principal dancer, telling the story of his battle with love-sickness and eventual revival through entertainment.


Handel's Water Musick
February 15, 2020 - 3pm & 8pm

Featuring two of Handel’s most treasured works.

First his exquisite choral elegy written for long-time friend and patron Queen Caroline, consort to George II. Second his most famous instrumental work, written for one of the most incredible musical spectacles of Handel’s career. In 1717 King George requested a royal concert on the river, and, as the King’s barge floated from Whitehall to Chelsea, 50 musicians played a collection of pieces that would become the most famous suite in Classical music history.



Gilbert & Sullivan's Trial by Jury
May 10, 2020 - 3pm & 8pm

When it comes to operetta, nothing surpasses the wit and satire of Gilbert and Sullivan.

Is it possible to sue someone over a broken-off engagement? Come and see if you sympathize more with the Plaintiff Angelina or the Defendant Edwin in this delightful (and slightly ridiculous) gem of musical theatre. Prefacing our performance will be a G&S Singalong - so start practicing your Modern Major General!


All concerts take place at The Ballroom at Hycroft Manor (1489 McRae Ave, Vancouver)
