Coming Soon — The Fall of Constantinople
The start of the 2014-2015 season kicks off with The Fall of Constantinople on Labor Day Weekend!
Majestic ceremonies for the cathedral of Hagia Sophia, triumphant assertions of superiority by Westerners, and fervent prayers for the healing of political and religious divisions are followed by two poignant laments for the Fall of Constantinople. The first is by Manuel Chrysaphes, the last imperial cantor at Hagia Sophia, and the second by Guillaume Dufay, the 15th century’s most important composer in the West.
