Fallis wraps 27 years with the Toronto ConsortEditorial
After 27 years with The Toronto Consort, David Fallis will conduct his final performances as Artistic Director this month. May 25-27 at Trinity-St. Paul’s Centre, the Consort presents Monteverdi’s Orfeo, featuring English tenor Charles Daniels in the title role.
Fallis has made considerable contributions to Toronto’s Early Music Scene. With The Toronto Consort, he has led staged, semi-staged, and concert performances of all three operas by Monteverdi, and works by Cavalli and Carissimi.
Orfeo, a story about music’s power to make great things happen, and “the first great opera”, is a fitting finale to Fallis’ tenure as Artistic Director.
