For the fourth edition of Oper’Actuel 2013 Works In Progress, Chants Libres, is giving Montrealers the opportunity to live an exciting adventure: to be the first to hear excerpts of four entirely new operas presented by composers and librettists.
Young singers and musicians from Atelier de musique contemporaine de l’Université de Montréal, conducted by Cristian Gort, Atelier de musique de chambre de l’Université de Montréal, conducted by Jean-Loup Gagnon and Les salons de l’ombre jaune ensemble, will perform, one after the other, excerpts from four operas in development. From one opera to the next, we will experience different aesthetics, styles and forms, through diverse tales and eras.
Marie-Pierre Brasset (Quebec) plunges us into one of those daily dramas of modern life (La piñata, libretto by Nicolas Lemieux); Kristin Norderval (Norway/USA) gives us a poetic opera which brings to life history at its biggest and smallest forms, through the telling of the tragic destiny of the Argentine Patricia Isasa (Trials of Patricia Isasa, libretto by Naomi Wallace); Nickos Harizanos (Greece) explores psychic meanderings inspired by a classic Greek myth (Médéa Sparagmata opus 135, libretto by Euripides); Pierre Michaud (New-Brunswick), for his part gives us a Felliniesque take on opera (Le rêve de Grégoire, libretto by Pierre Michaud).
