The Toronto Consort
Presents La Nef with Michael Slattery in
Dowland in Dublin
Was the great John Dowland, often considered the quintessential English lute master, actually Irish? There’s lots of evidence that he was, and our guest ensemble makes a compelling case when they take the famous songs and fantasias, and set them with Irish flute, fiddle and cittern. Rising star, tenor Michael Slattery, (dubbed by Opera Now as “Leonardo di Caprio with top notes”) brings all his signature passion and charm to the evening.
