Next Spring We Celebrate José Evangelista

Montréal, Thursday, December 7, 2017 — Chants Libres is remounting La Porte in 2018

Next June, our company will present "La Porte", by José Evangelista and Alexis Nouss, an opera for solo voice and percussion created in 1987 following a commission by Pauline Vaillancourt.

An excellent opportunity for us to celebrate this influential composer by joining the programming dedicated to him as part of the Série Hommage organized by the SMCQ. Note that José Evangelista also composed the magnificent "Manuscrit trouvé à Sargosse" for Chants Libres in 2001.

Based on the original staging by Joseph Saint-Gelais, and under the Artistic Direction of Pauline Vaillancourt, "La Porte" will be performed by the mezzo-soprano Ghislaine Deschambault and the percussionist Huizi Wang.

5 performances are slated for the concert hall of the Conservatoire in Montréal on June 1, 2, 8, 9, and 10, 2018. Tickets will be available soon!
