A Masque Across Time: Dance of the Renaissance and Baroque
A Northwest Showcase presented by the Early Music Guild
Tuesday, March 10, 7:30pm - 9:00pm
Trinity Parish Episcopal Church, 8th Avenue, Seattle, WA, United States
Come join Seattle Early Dance, directed by Anna Mansbridge, for a festive courtly masque featuring dance, music, song, and poetry from the glittering courts of Europe. We will welcome you to a gallant performance spanning three centuries of pageantry and pomp. Experience the elegant and flirtatious rituals of the fifteenth century, the dexterity and nimbleness of the sixteenth century, and the complexity and charm of the eighteenth century.
Be transported through time with this not to be missed performance of these delightful dances performed in exquisite costumes to live music played on period instruments. We are joined by tenor Bryan Lane as our special guest who will narrate our show and sing a selection of beautiful songs from the different time periods.
