Xara Choral Theatre is Canada’s leading creator of narrative-based choral theatre performances, and Nova Scotia’s only fully professional choir. In a collaborative environment, we give life to sung stories that are a feast for the senses and heart-felt explorations of identity, community, and culture.

Based in Kji’puktuk/Halifax on traditional Mi’kmaq territory, Xara was formed in 2007 when Artistic Director Christina Murray and a team of four women began a year-long process to create an ensemble that embodied a passion for music making, meaningful art, and community building. Since then, Xara’s work has gained national and international recognition for its innovation, as we tell stories both true and mythical through a rich tapestry of challenging choral repertoire, movement, lighting, spoken word, and visual elements.
