Chaliapin: A Portrait in Recordings
The Free Concert Series in the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre is a unique opportunity to experience diverse artistic programming in what has become one of Toronto’s most exciting cultural hubs. Six inspiring series offer concerts, dance performances and engaging presentations that feature both up-and-coming young artists and established international stars. All performances are FREE to the public, with admission on a first-come, first-served basis. Concertgoers are encouraged to arrive early as late seating is not available.
12 – 1 p.m. Stephen R. Clarke, lecturer and curator of the acclaimed Stratton Estate, offers a fascinating portrait of Feodor Chaliapin, one of the greatest basses of his day and the first artist to sing the part of Don Quichotte for Massenet in 1910.
