A nationally sourced all-star roster of professional singers, Seraphic Fire weaves complex vocals and dynamic performance into a shimmering audio-visual tapestry. Joining forces with the Firebird Chamber Orchestra and playwright Laura Schellhardt, the group brings its classical poise and pitch-perfect gusto to the world premiere of King Arthur. This new interpretation of the baroque opera musically exhumes the Arthurian legend as ethereal singers, dexterous instrumentalists, and skillful narration regale audiences with a romantic and magical tale of conflict between the Britons and the Saxons. An entertaining blend of music and drama, the production provides an ideal way to treat a special choral music fan, history buff, or Renaissance fair chanteuse.
