Heralding in its seventy-fifth anniversary year, The Cloisters reprises the critically acclaimed production of Ludus Danielis commissioned and presented by Concerts at The Cloisters in 2008. The mystery play was written in Beauvais, France, in the twelfth century to celebrate the Feast of Fools, traditionally held around the new year. Combining chanted drama, lively music on medieval instruments, dance, and sung processions, the story of the prophet Daniel interpreting the handwriting on the wall and his miraculous delivery from the lion's den appeals to young and old alike.
Seating is limited for this staged presentation.
