• Stage direction: Pauline Vaillancourt


Directed by Pauline Vaillancourt, Arias brings together excerpts from the 13 new opera created and produced by Chants Libres over the course of its 20 year history. Chamber operas, electr’opera, vitual’opera, oper’installation, techn’opera, enchanted opera, all of which combine a modern aesthetic vision with the lyric traditions of Chants Libres. They will be brought back to the life in a brilliant new staging, showcasing the singular palette of each production and the variety of musical, dramatic and scenographic colours of each piece.

Composers: Alain Thibault, Claude Ballif, Bruce Mather, Giacinto Scelsi, Serge Provost, Jean Piché, Zack Settel, José Evangelista, Louis Dufort, John Oliver and Gilles Tremblay.

In collaboration with the Nouvel Ensemble Moderne and the musicians of Bradyworks conducted by Lorraine Vaillancourt.
