Luminato is Toronto's Festival of Arts and Creativity. It runs every June for ten days, this year from the 8th - 17th. It was launched in 2007 by Tony Gagliano and David Pecaut - whose name now graces the square that plays a huge part in the festival in downtown Toronto. For those ten days the streets, stages and more will be illuminated with arts and creativity celebrating theatre, dance, music, literature, food, film and much, much more.
Tomorrow morning (14th) at 10am (ET), Luminato's CEO Janice Price and Artistic Director Jorn Weisbrodt will announce the full festival program at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts. You can watch the announcement LIVE on Luminato's website.
There are sure to be some huge names on the line-up. One thing we can already tell you about is the North American première of Einstein on the Beach - a five hour opera/theatre performance. First performed in France in 1976, it's seen as one of the most important artistic achievements of the 20th century. Being performed for the first time in 20 years, the opera meshes together the world of science with that of every day existence, as seen in the life of Albert Einstein.
