Their names are Denys Arcand, Gilbert Turp, Evelyne de la Chenelière, Hélène Dorion, and Charles Binamé… They will take part in an unusual exercise: rewriting the words of their favourite opera arias. During the event, join Hélène Dorion, musicologist Pierre Vachon, and singers from the Atelier lyrique de l’Opéra de Montréal in exploring the writers’ process and sensibilities… and get to hear both the original and new versions of the arias!
As part of the Festival international de la littérature, in collaboration with Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec.
Guest artists: Hélène Dorion, singers of the Atelier lyrique de l'Opéra de Montréal.
