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.

LITTLE LEAF
Did I see a leaf fall from that tree?
Little leaf, I do not know your name yet I have seen you fall.
You did not fall like a stone from the sky
You did not swoop like a great hawk
You drifted and you sang a song
Your song is in my heart.
– © Duke Redbird
