At the Ismaili Centre Toronto Social Hall for 3 Nights only - AYRE: A fusion of Arabic, Hebrew, Sardinian, and Sephardic melodiesAyre is presented in partnership with the Aga Khan Council for Canada, and the Glenn Gould School of the Royal Conservatory of Music.

… a stunningly beautiful song cycle of Arabic, Ladino, Sardinian and Spanish texts by Argentinian composer Osvaldo Golijov. Directed by Against the Grain Theater’s Artistic Director Joel Ivany, this immersive musical experience features the lyrical voice of Lebanese-Canadian soprano Miriam Khalil, backed by eleven world-class instrumentalists.

Against the Grain Theater’s presentation of Ayre premiered to acclaim this past summer at The Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity and the Ottawa International Chamber Music Festival, where it caused a sensation. And now it’s being presented at Toronto’s breathtaking Ismaili Centre, for three nights only.
