Soundstreams’ ELECTRIC MESSIAH is an utterly immersive theatrical reimagining of Handel’s masterpiece featuring music and dance. The musical influences are as wide ranging as jazz, blues, hip-hop, gospel, classical, and global, creating a deeply personal connection to universal themes of love, betrayal, and redemption. Four extraordinary singers from diverse genres are accompanied by an eclectic instrumental ensemble that seamlessly melds the baroque with electronica.
Never the same two years in a row, ELECTRIC MESSIAH introduces new voices and interpretations: this year, it’s the world premiere of a new interpolation by composer Lieke van der Voort.
Soundstreams is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, with an eclectic mix of new music by Canadian and international composers encompassing a wide range of genres from chamber and vocal/choral music, to contemporary opera. The company is recognized for creating compelling thematic programming, aiming through new music to explore significant issues including social justice that have deep resonance with our time and place.
