Described by the Chronicle Herald as “annual magic”, A King’s Christmas is back for its ninth year. This feast of seasonal song and story is performed in a tour of Nova Scotian communities each year and has become an annual tradition for many. The music features carols from the mediaeval to the modern, and both music and readings highlight works from the Maritimes, often with original material written for the occasion by Halley or the narrator.
This year’s narrator is Roberta Barker, an alumna of King’s, who is Associate Professor of Theatre at King’s/Dalhousie and concurrently the Associate Director of the Fountain School of Performing Arts. Ms Barker brings to these concerts a wealth of expertise in drama and literature with particular focus on the works of Canadian women.
Tickets $20-$100, available at www.tickethalifax.com and from the King’s Co-op Bookstore, 902-422-1270 ext. 261.
