Trillo - Un Hommage à Notre Dame

Join Trillo for a concert of French Medieval music of the 12th-14th centuries, performed on period instruments!

After the cathedral was ravaged by devastating fires earlier this year, Trillo wanted to perform a concert highlighting the majesty and splendour of this precious historic landmark. Whilst some of the physical structure has been destroyed, the musical history surrounding the cathedral is very much alive and can be re-created (even on the other side of the world) with historic instruments and playing styles.

The music featured throughout the concert represents a typical snapshot of the sublime works that were being performed and composed in France throughout the 12-14th centuries. Any one of these pieces could have feasibly been performed within the walls of Notre Dame itself!

Location: Highfield Rd Uniting Church, 72 Highfield Rd Canterbury

Time: 2:30pm

Cost: $20, Concession $15, Children Free (under 16)

Afternoon Tea Provided!

Trillo Hopes to see you there!

Dido and Aeneas

Directed by: Glenda Linscott
Music Director: Geoffrey Lancaster
Choreographed by: Andries Weidemann
Performed by: Classical Vocal, Music and Dance students

Henry Purcell’s famous opera Dido and Aeneas, a poignant tale of ill-fated lovers, is restored to its original musical dimensions by Australian pianist and conductor, Geoffrey Lancaster. The earliest surviving libretto for the work, dating from 1689, contains material for which the music has been lost, including an entire Prologue, a chorus at the end of Act 2, eight dances and a spoken Epilogue. Now, thanks to Lancaster's sensitive reconstruction of the missing music, audiences can savour this classic English three-act opera in its miraculous entirety
