L’eau qui danse, la pomme qui chante et l’oiseau qui dit la vérité, sur un livret de Pierre Morency, a été habillé avec un soin religieux: Le perfectionnisme instrumental (la marque de Lorraine Vaillancourt), le plateau vocal engagé et, surtout, l’inventivité visuelle (projections, éclairages, costumes) témoignent de l’immense respect porté au compositeur.”

Christophe Huss, Opéra Magazine #48 (France), February 1, 2010

“The whole constitutes an impressive sonic acuity. We seem to hear the wind blow, the buzz of insects, the movement of the earth, and even flagrant flowers are given the rare ability to be heard.”

“The opera, as such, is magnificent: all kinds of stage effects, projections that suggest various places, ingenious lighting that is sometimes directed towards the audience, shadow play, extravagant and luxurious costumes.”

Claude Gingras, La Presse (Canada), November 21, 2009

“From the moment the curtain fell on the stage at the Monument-National, a large number of audience members had the distinct impression of having witnessed a defining moment in the history of contemporary music in Quebec. (…) The audience applauds thunderously, the opera is magnificent.”
