Do you really know the person you love? In this opera inspired by Éric-Emmanuel Schmitt's play, Variations énigmatiques, and with music composed by Patrick Burgan, this psychological intrigue takes us to the heart of a bizarre love triangle where tensions are palpable. Two Quebec tenors, Antoine Bélanger and Jean-Michel Richer, are accompanied by the I Musici Montreal orchestra, in an intimate staging. This is the Opéra de Montréal's first co-production with a European company.
TWO HEARTS ARE BETTER THAN ONE
On one side, we have an isolated, reclusive writer. On the other, a mysterious, inquisitive journalist. And in between the two, a woman. United by the love and the grief they have in common, the two men find each other.
To all ticket holders: a free pre-concert presentation will take place one hour before each performance at the Espace Sainte-Catherine in Place des Arts - in front of Théâtre Maisonneuve.
Moderator : Pierre Vachon, musicologue
