Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine
With Permission by Music Theatre International
The Brothers Grimm hit Broadway with an epic fairytale where worlds collide. James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone’s favorite storybook characters and brings them together for a timeless yet relevant piece and rare modern classic. The story follows a Baker and his wife who wish to have a child, Cinderella who wishes to attend the King’s Festival, and Jack who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.

Thin Edge New Music Collective
Thin Edge New Music Collective (Toronto) and Ensemble Paramirabo (Montreal) team up to present a new programme exploring the spirit of collaboration.
Featuring Steve Reich’s award-winning “Double Sextet,” Louis Andriessen’s “Worker’s Union,” and the Vancouver premiere of a new work for all 12 musicians by Brian Harman, Raging Against the Machine reflects the desire to create a climate of shared resources, audience, and community. Touring across Canada, this exhilarating performance also embraces the mechanical, rhythmic qualities of Reich’s piece and the political undertones of Andriessen’s.
Next, both ensembles will move into uncharted territory when they each premiere a piece by a composer recommended by the other.
See you there!

Strongly influenced by early 20th Century soul power women, Rada boasts a vocal range akin to that of Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin and has a great appreciation for more contemporary black divas including Eryka Badu, Lauryn Hill, and Jill Scott.
