Constantinople is the story of a musical ensemble that chose the journey as its cornerstone—geographical journeys, but also historical, cultural and inner—and to seek inspiration from all sources, to aim for distant horizons. Drawing inspiration the ancient city illuminating East and West, the ensemble, founded in 1998 in Montreal, was conceived as a forum for creation, encounters and cross-fertilization. Over the past decade, the group has developed over 30 new works and staged nearly 100 cities in 20 countries.
