Come and taste the delicious recipe for Complètement Toqué! This theatrical concert, followed by a tasting of French specialties, is a celebration of the legendary French cuisine. Take one Party Prince and one golden fingered Chef. Shake them up with the delightful Margoton, fresh off the farm. Sprinkle them all with the sweet sounds of recorder, viol and theorbo, and a smattering of breathtaking baroque music from France…Voilà! The delicious recipe for Complètement Toqué! Recently ranked as a world heritage by UNESCO, France’s legendary gastronomic savoir-faire was in large part dreamed up by the culinary wizards who worked their magic in the court of Louis XIV. Remembered for the sauces that have inspired today’s Haute Cuisine, their reputations were built upon richly appointed tables, as well as dazzling Musical and Theatrical entertainments that spiced up their memorable festive meals. Fuoco e Cenere has concocted a highly original musical honoring these purveyors of “taste” and shares the stage with Chef Denis Leroy.

Our opening concert will be an unusual departure for BFAS, as we present the famed 1929 version of Phantom of the Opera, starring Lon Chaney, with the fabulous internationally known organist and improv specialist, David Briggs, creating great music to accompany the film. This production will be held at Saint John’s Cathedral, with a pre-screening reception beginning at 4 PM. This event is a great way to begin the month of October! We look forward to seeing you there!
