A Canadian Premiere!

Starring acclaimed Lebanese-Canadian opera singer Joyce El-Khoury in the role of Scheherazade well supported by Serouj Kradjian and ensemble – a Canadian first! A exotic fusion of traditional masterworks featuring Maurice Ravel’s Scheherazade alongside twentieth-century Lebanese songs and many other jewels of the East.

Sashaying up the red-carpeted stairs of London’s Royal Opera House for the camera, resplendent in a Marchesa gown, El-Khoury is the very embodiment of a prima donna.

Mozart, Johannes Brahms and Cris Derksen.

If there is something to desire,
there will be something to regret.
If there is something to regret,
there will be something to recall.
If there is something to recall,
there was nothing to regret.
If there was nothing to regret,
there was nothing to desire.
– Vera Pavlova

Family fun for all ages including relaxed performances and musical activities for preschool children – ending with a songwriting spectacle!

The afternoon begins with a series of musical activities for preschoolers under age six, helping them learn the building blocks of music, such as rhythm via dancing. This is followed by a songwriting spectacle for all ages with a special performance by living folk legend Jerry Gray, who leads the audience through the song “This Land Is Your Land” (Canadian version based on the original Woodie Guthrie song).

Click here for a printable version of the Canadian lyrics to join the sing-a-long.

What Are Relaxed Performances?

Relaxed performances are informal concerts designed for youth who have autism, sensory communication disorders or learning difficulties. A ‘chill-out’ zone is provided for distressed children and includes fidget toys and stress balls; volunteer staff are briefed on how to help children with their special needs; chattering and shouting are fully accepted without any worry about etiquette.
