“Legend of the Unicorn” is based on "The Hunt for the Unicorn," a series of seven Renaissance-era tapestries that tells the story of how a group of noblemen set out to capture the mystical creature. Featuring the timeless themes of the power of innocence, mercy and compassion, the performance will be sure to thrill and captivate.
Campanella Children's Choir will be performing together with the Chicago Trio (Irene Schweizer, Natalya Chernysh and Diana Kofman), a Russian-American classical music group. The slideshow of the original "The Hunt for the Unicorn” tapestries will play in the background as they perform, giving the event a truly unique atmosphere.
”The Legend of the Unicorn” will take place March 2, 2013, at 7:00 PM. Adults and children six and older are welcome to attend. We hope to see you there.
