In the Footsteps of Da Vinci

April 14, 2019 2:00 pm. In 1502, Leonardo da Vinci designed the plans for what would then be the largest bridge in the world, in Istanbul. However, the project never saw the light of day, as Sultan Bayezid II found the artist's project too ambitious. Five hundred years after Da Vinci's death, this concert will bring his unfinished brainchild to life in music. Inspired by 16 and 17 century manuscripts from Constantinople and Venice, the works will immerse us in the imaginary and audacious world of Leonardo da Vinci's drawings.. 1000 Exhibition WayOttawa, ON K1S 5J3..
