"The grand finale to our season is the greatest masterpiece of Medieval music theatre: a wondrous telling of the story of the writing on the wall and Daniel in the lions’ den. A full theatrical production, with the Consort Medieval players and singers joined by Kevin Skelton in the role of Daniel; Olivier Laquerre, Derek Kwan and Bud Roach; and the young voices of the VIVA! Youth Singers of Toronto, this is an event not to be missed."
