401 W. Mineral Ave., Littleton, CO
Hear ye! Hear ye! Join us for a Medieval Madrigal Dinner including a catered 4-course prime rib dinner and entertainment by the Colorado Opera Singers!
What is a Madrigal Dinner, you might ask? A Madrigal Dinner is a 21st Century re-creation of the Renaissance feasts held in the great baronial halls throughout England during the twelve days of Christmas. If you lived in England during the Sixteenth century and were lucky enough to be one of the favored guests, you would be dazzled with the stunning pageantry, humor, endless amounts of succulent food, and extraordinary music.
The meal is divided into courses, each of which is heralded with a traditional Christmas song. Other Christmas carols will be sung throughout the evening, and a live nativity will also be part of the performance.
In our 21st Century recreation of these feasts, the entertainment, is every bit as dazzling. The royal court, with the King and Queen, and a possible profusion of cast members including a court jester, wandering minstrels, itinerant actors, ensembles, dancers, jugglers, mimes, and all sorts of characters, combine in their early English dialogue, laughter, and songs to bring to the audience a wonderful immersion into holiday Renaissance England. The ambiance of the evening is one of warmth, laughter, love and joy.
