New this season, we’re proud to collaborate with Canadian baroque-pop artist Kyrie Kristmanson for the Canadian release of her album Modern Ruin, a repertoire for voice and string quartet inspired by the lost songs of the women troubadours of medieval France. Hailing from Ottawa, ON, Kyrie is currently a Paris-based singer-songwriter whose Medieval-pop blend “evokes the ghost of Aliénor d’Aquitaine, protector of the trobaïritz (female troubadours).”
Led by stage director Amanda Smith, an AtG ensemble including percussionist Nathan Pettipas, dancer Mary-Dora Bloch-Hansen, and baritone Adam Harris, will perform original arrangements for marimba and voice inspired by French song. This opener will be followed by Kyrie’s mainstage album performance with the the Warhol Dervish Quartet. The evening unfolds at Théâtre de l’Alliance Française.

Théâtre de l’Alliance Française (Spadina Theatre)
24 Spadina Road, M5R 2S7 Toronto, ON
