A world premiere Soundstreams and Luminato commission from R. Murray Schafer, The Children's Crusade is an opera for nearly 100 performers including the Canadian Children's Opera Company and the Toronto Consort.

This spectacular musical extravaganza is inspired by the actual events of the 13th century, when a crusade of love and peace was led by a rag-tag group of children from France.

Set in an industrial warehouse in the heart of Parkdale, the audience moves through the space with the cast and musicians, on an interractive journey of discovery.
