The Play of Daniel
Tuesday, January 31, 2017 at 8:00pm
The Ludus Danielis, or Play of Daniel, is a powerful medieval mystery play composed eight centuries ago in Beauvais, France.
The Boston Camerata’s recent new production of The Play of Daniel, edited, staged and directed by Anne Azéma, renews and transforms this classic work of early music theater. It brings together music and movement, theater and liturgy, light and shadow, to retell the biblical story of the young prophet for today’s audiences. Acclaimed by the public and selected as “best of the year” by Boston critics, Camerata’s Daniel is now coming to St. Louis.
The Boston Camerata will be joined by singers from Rosati-Kain High School and Webster University in this one of a kind theatrical event.
