The latest Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra multi-media musical offering Tales of Two Cities: The Leipzig-Damascus Coffee House illuminates each city’s striking features in common: both enjoyed a lively tradition of coffee houses in which the finest musicians of the city performed and both were also famous centers of scholarship and learning. Anyone who has attended one of Tafelmusik’s three previous multi-media concert projects at the Lobero in the past decade (The Galileo Project, House of Dreams or J.S Bach: The Circle of Creation) can attest to the incredible originality and conception of their insightful musical stage creations that combine live music, text and stunning projections transporting the audience back in time and place. Not to be missed!
