Hark, all ye Appreciators of Movement, Musick and a Story well told! A collaboration with the Chant Clair Chamber Choir and Jason Powell, this Production shall weave such familiar Fantastickal personae as the Princess, the Knight and the Dragon into a new—and quite unfamiliar—Tapestry. With a Score compassing both canonical repertoire and newly penned Ballads, The Quest is a unique blend of the Real and the Magickal.
