Opera Early and Ancient: Ludus Danielis (The Play of Daniel) with San Francisco Renaissance Voices
San Francisco Renaissance Voices, (Katherine McKee, conducting) presents the musical liturgical drama, Ludus Danielis (The Play of Daniel), written by students at the Beauvais Cathedral in France some time between 1227-1234. Ludus Danielis is one of the earliest examples of what we now call opera. Its poetic text closely follows the story of the biblical prophet Daniel at the court of the Persian king Belshazzar and is filled with satraps, soldiers, angels ... and of course lions. Performed semi-staged with medieval instrumentation, for our production of this Medieval jewel we are joined by members of our dance troupe for an exciting ending to our ninth season - and a great show for the entire family!
