Les amoureux célèbres

19 October 2013

Romeo and Juliette, Samson and Delilah, Carmen and Don José, Verlaine and Rimbaud… Be they historical, legendary, or purely fictional, famous couples have always been fascinating and have inspired a number of authors, playwrights, and composers. Throughout the opera repertoire, some of the world's most well-known lovers use a variety of ways to express the full range of emotions brought on by the feeling of love. Performing opera arias by Mozart, Gounod, Bizet, Donizetti, Massenet, and many others, the artists of the Atelier lyrique de l’Opéra de Montréal invite you to come hear them sing to you about love. 

With Florie Valiquette, France Bellemare, Rachèle Tremblay, Josh Whelan, Jean-Michel Richer and Jennifer Szeto
