  • “La porte”: Delve with us into the work of José Evangelista and Alexis Nouss

    Spring is here and coming soon to the stage of the Conservatoire in Montréal is “La porte”, the opera that resulted from a commission by Pauline Vaillancourt to composer José Evangelista in 1987.

    Performed for the first time at the Événements du neuf concert in Montréal in April 1987 and followed by numerous performances in Canada and in France until 1998, the work enjoyed genuine critical acclaim. On a set designed by Joseph Saint-Gelais, Pauline Vaillancourt’s voice was accompanied by the percussion of Julien Grégoire.

    Together, let’s discover the original version of this beautiful work by José Evangelista and Alexis Nouss, before the new performance by mezzo-soprano Ghislaine Deschambault and percussionist Huizi Wang hits the stage on June 1, 2, 8, 9 and 10, 2018.
