Referred to as ‘dazzling and magnetic’, Camarada has been performing international repertoire for more than 25 years. Its concerts share the joy of chamber music by pairing performers of the highest caliber with masterfully inspired programming. Camarada’s touring season features music at the heart of Argentinian tango, a tribute to the great American composers, Bohemia and its composers, the roots of Flamenco music and dance, and a newly commissioned work, Sanctuary Suite, composed by and performed with jazz legend Peter Sprague.
A comic fable for our times; set long ago in the cursed village of Kulyenchikov. Leon
Tolchinsky, a young, enthusiastic teacher arrives only to discover that the village has
fallen under a curse of stupidity. As it turns out, he has only 24 hours to break the
curse by teaching the young maiden, Sophia Zubritsky something; anything! If he
fails to break the curse, he must leave Kulyenchikov or surrender to the curse and
become stupid like the rest of the village. Simon has crafted a wacky and witty fable
of foolery with surprisingly philosophical wisdom about the nature of knowing.
