The Tempest Project
The Tempest Project is a new immersive work that Music on Main is developing iteratively between 2020 and 2024.
Celebrated for “inventive presentations of top-flight contemporary music” (Stir Magazine), Music on Main is re-imagining classical and contemporary music performance with The Tempest Project, an ambitious, immersive production that will premiere in July 2024.
Led by Artistic Director David Pay, this staged production will explore dreams and disruption, revenge and reconciliation, power, magic, redemption, empathy, and the impacts of colonialism.
An integral part of this project is The Tempest Project Company: a group of Metro Vancouver based musicians and creative professionals who are lending their talents and lived experiences to the growth and scope of this ambitious production as it develops. An important part of this Company includes providing space for musicians from various musical and cultural backgrounds and teachings to come together to learn and teach each other about their musical practices.
Royal Bank of Canada is this project’s Founding Partner.
