This fun-filled costumed evening of music and dramatic surprises takes place at the court of Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth I played by audience favorite, soprano Susan Gundunas from Phantom of the Opera.  Her Majesty’s favorite troupe, the stellar choristers of San Francisco Renaissance Voices will be joined by their dance troupe, San Francisco Renaissance Dancers, recorders, Celtic harp and percussion, as well as Master William Shakespeare, for music byMorley, Tallis, Byrd and others. The evening will also include plenty of opportunities for our audience members to sing along with us in this joyous performance.
