Come and enjoy 'The Judgment of Paris', a "chamber musical" written by Tom Allen.
People who listen to CBC Radio are familiar with the voice of Tom Allen. His programs are always filled with interesting facts about the selection, the composer, or our times. Not too many know he is an accomplished musician. With his musical friends - all stars in their own right - Tom Allen has created The Judgement of Paris, a mix of cabaret, history and story-telling with timeless music by Debussy and Ravel, as well as original songs by the performers. It is new and old, heroic and tragic, history and fiction - and may the best composer win.
