A Medieval Masterpiece Revisited

This powerful, highly-praised production is on national tour in 2018. The themes of justice, and of truth spoken to power, are once again front and center as the Jewish captive Daniel confronts the tyrannical Belshazzar. The magnificent musical play of Daniel, composed eight centuries ago in Beauvais, France was newly transcribed from the original manuscript source and powerfully staged for modern audiences by Anne Azéma, it was premiered in Boston in 2014 to critical and public acclaim.
