Engraving for Montréal Baroque Festival


25,000+ measures later...


Althéa - Un nouvel opéra de Bach! will be premiered Sunday evening as part of the 15th annual Festival Montréal Baroque.



Althéa is an original idea from the late Dr. Bruce Haynes, gathering various arias, choruses and instrumental movements from across the Bach cannon, imagining what it might have been like if Herr Bach had taken to the opera genre instead of concentrating his efforts on church music. I first heard Bruce talk about this idea over ten years ago in a seminar class of his at Schulich School of Music at McGill University and now have had the privilege of helping to bring his vision to life.
