Bolstered by huge community success at the Théâtre Paradoxe in February 2023, Ravel’s L’Enfant et les Sortilèges, an opera for the whole family, now takes the stage at Théâtre Maisonneuve. Sylvain Scott stage-directs resident artists of the Atelier lyrique who perform with the Orchestre de l’Agora conducted by none other than Nicolas Ellis. This performance will be preceded by the premiere of Le Phare [The Lighthouse] by Laurence Jobidon and Maria Reva. It relates the story of a lonely lighthouse which, after turning off its beam to attract boats to its rocky base, is faced with unforeseen consequences.

Being a kid is not always easy. When his mother punishes him for his many acts of mischief and not doing his homework, the Child throws a tantrum and destroys everything he comes across. Then, before his astonished eyes, his room transforms into a fantastical world in which objects come to life!
