APOCALYPSIS: A MUSIC-THEATRE WORK

On June 26, 27, 28, 2015, at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts in Toronto, R. Murray Schafer’s Apocalypsis was performed in full, for the first time since its world premiere in 1980, under the direction of Lemi Ponifasio and the baton of Toronto conductor David Fallis, as part of Luminato Festival. Schafer’s epic musical voyage is in two parts: “Part One describes the destruction of the world and Part Two suggests the birth of the new universe.” In one of the largest performance events Canada has ever seen, Apocalypsis blended professional and amateur talents in a cast of almost one thousand singers, musicians, conductors, actors and dancers to create an unprecedented feast for the eyes, ears and soul.
