Music on Main presents the world premiere of The Tempest Project, running July 17-22, 2024 at the Vancouver Playhouse. The musically and theatrically audacious production invites audiences to embark on an unforgettable journey into a ‘strange new world,’ challenging the very definition of what a music performance can be.

Drawing upon themes in Shakespeare's The Tempest - revenge, forgiveness, freedom, and betrayal - audiences will walk through sound-and-light enveloped halls, and backstage areas of the Playhouse and will be greeted with live performances, recordings from hidden speakers, projections, audio-and-optical illusions, and much more. The music will be performed live by an eclectic group of extraordinary musicians: Julia Ulehla, vocals; Paolo Bortolussi, flute; Aram Bajakian, guitar; Saina Khaledi, santour; Dailin Hsieh, zheng; Julia Chien, percussion; Jonathan Lo, cello; and Rachel Kiyo Iwaasa, piano.
