It has become a Foxburg Christmas tradition, each December, Allegheny River-Stone Center for the Arts and the madrigal singers transform Lincoln Hall, Foxburg, into a great hall remienscent of Medieval England. The king and queen arrive in grand flourish and invite all in attendance to share in a festive dinner. The madrigal choir, dressed in period costume, entertains with madrigal songs and traditional holiday carols. They serve each meal course, while a story unfolds set to music.
The Madrigal Dinner is an American form of dinner theater. It is set in the Middle Ages and is generally comedic in nature. The meal is divided into courses, each are heralded with a traditional song. A play is performed between courses and a concert of choral music concludes the festivities. The dinner is intended to imitate a meal that might have been served during the Middle Ages.
