The Raoul-Jobin Hall at Palais Montcalm, with its majestic organ Casavant, is the ideal setting for Christian Thomas’ opera, adapted from Michel Tremblay’s work, Messe solennelle pour une pleine lune d’été. It features the five figures of the couple and the widow (Lyne Fortin) of the play, who will be able to rely on cinematographic music to express their pain in a ceremony to life, a prayer to love. A Quebec-style cast directed by Alain Zouvi in a setting created by Jean Bard.

Once again, the association of the Festival d’opéra de Québec with JM Canada gives young opera artists a chance to showcase their talents and offers you a refreshing reading of Donizetti’s irresistible work, La Fille du régiment, which features ordinary characters where joy, emotion and events are expressed in music that is sometimes military, sometimes lyrical, sometimes made of popular melodies. This is certainly an event not to be missed!
