Montréal, Monday, January 31, 2011 — The 14th Opus Prize awards ceremony, organized by the Conseil Québécois de la musique, was held on Sunday January 30th, at the Claude-Champagne Theatre at the University of Montreal. Nominated in four categories for its 13th new opera L’eau qui danse, la pomme qui chante et l’oiseau qui dit la vérité, Chants Libres took home two awards:

  1. Musical event of the year — Chants Libres
  2. Best new work of the year — Gilles Tremblay/Chants Libres

Pauline Vaillancourt, our Artistic Director, would like to share these two awards with all the creative artists, performers, musicians and technical staff of the Enchanted Opera.

This 14th annual award gala was also an opportunity to honour Gilles Tremblay: he received the award for Composer of the year as well as a cheque for 10 000$.

The Enchanted Opera was composed by Gilles Tremblay with a libretto by Pierre Morency, and was staged by Robert Bellefeuillle and conducted by Lorraine Vaillancourt. It was seen by more than 1400 people on November 19, 20 and 21, 2009 at the Ludger-Duvernay Theatre at the Monument-National in Montreal.
