The Ismaili Centre, Toronto – Social Hall / 8:00pm
Constantinople, a multi-media theatrical performance produced and performed by the Gryphon Trio, one of the world’s top chamber musical ensembles, explores the spirit of an ancient city: the cultural crossroads of East and West and also speaks about modern day North-American urbanism, where cultural diversity is a new the only — emerging identity.
Sections of Constantinople were performed during the convocation ceremony at the University of Toronto, to confer an honorary degree upon His Highness the Aga Khan.
Constantinople, performed by Juno Award winners Gryphon Trio, was noted by the Globe and Mail to be ‘one of the most talked about contemporary classical compositions of the decade’.
The Ismaili Centre, Toronto, will host three special performances of Constantinople on November 26, 27 & 28, 2015 to conclude Cities of Arrival — a curated program of lectures, workshops and performances exploring the pasts, presents and futures of cities and urban spaces. Each performance will start promptly at 8.00 p.m.
