2010 — Finalist for a Prix Opus from the Conseil québécois de la musique — Creation of the year (Opéra féerieL’eau qui danse, la pomme qui chante et l’oiseau qui dit la vérité)

This poetic tale is born of the imagination of two major Quebecois artists: the composer Gilles Tremblay, a veritable pillar of the Quebecois and Canadian musical scenes, who created the soundscape for the Quebec Pavilion at Expo 67 and Pierre Morency, a poet, a theatre, radio and television artist and the author of the magnificent work L’œil américain, writing his first opera libretto, based on the tales of the French adventurer Madame D’Aulnoy. Both have received the highest honours for their respective bodies of work. The stage direction is by the theatre director Robert Bellefeuille, who has brought us the remarkable productions of Le conte de Monte-Cristo, Jouliks and La Dame aux camélias. In the orchestra pit, Lorraine Vaillancourt conducts the 13 performers and the 25 musicians of the Nouvel Ensemble Moderne (increased from 15 to 25 for the occasion), the group’s fifth collaboration with Chants Libres.

L’eau qui danse, la pomme qui chante et l’oiseau qui dit la vérité is an enchanted opera for young and old, to behold, to savour, to hear, to breathe, to experience… that exists in the intersection between magic and fairy tales.
