Digital – Online

FMA Retrospective – Webcast of the FMA 2003-2004 original production “Le Cercle de l’extase” (The Cercle of ecstasy)

The Oriental ensemble and the whirling dervishes of Alepppo & the Gregorian Schola Saint-Grégoire

Presented by:


” Two traditions, that initially seem distant, have entered into a superb dialogue…The Circle of Ecstasy has joined the East and the West through spirituality…(Nicolas Houle, Le Soleil)

“A lyrical experience absolutely magical…” Solange Levesque, Le Devoir

“This Sunday concert was impressive…” Alain Brunet, La Presse

Le Cercle de L’Extase (Circle of Ecstasy), acclaimed by the press and by Montreal’s audience, exceptionally combines the whirling dervishes and the Oriental Ensemble of Aleppo, with the Gregorian singers of Saint-Grégoire Schola of Montreal. It is a magnificent spectacle in which singing, dancing and music unite in a harmonious marriage and constitute a real artistic and spiritual dialogue between the mysticism of Islam and the liturgical tradition of Christianity. It’s a unique artistic blend of two sacred components, and a dialogue that transcends the ritual differences in a harmonious duet.
