This busy month of March is now behind us after the three performances of the opera Canti del Capricorno and the two evenings of Oper’Actuel — Works in Progress. Chants Libres is winding down the season with the sounds from those two successful events still floating in the air, having won over the hearts of our audiences. Don’t forget to come back next year for the world premiere of The Trials of Patricia Isasa!

Chants Libres is proud to present the 5th edition of its Oper’Actuel — Works In Progress event, which showcases new contemporary opera artists and which invites the audience to discover a whole range of new tendencies and possibilities in contemporary opera.
Four composer and librettist tandems were selected after a call for projects sent out in April 2014. Audiences will be able to hear excerpts from these four operas, performed by young singers and musicians from the Atelier de musique contemporaine de l’Université de Montréal, conducted by Cristian Gort and Lorraine Vaillancourt, and from the Ensemble Musiqu’Avenir of the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal, conducted by Véronique Lacroix. From one opera to the next, the audience will experience different aesthetics, styles and forms, through diverse tales and eras.
