Chants libres, compagnie lyrique de création will present its 17th creation L’ORANGERAIE in the Ludger-Duvernay Theatre at the Monument-National. The libretto by Larry Tremblay is inspired by the novel of the same name which has been awarded numerous international prizes. This first-ever operatic adaptation of L’ORANGERAIE is put to music by French-Lebanese composer Zad Moultaka. Known for the beauty of his vocal writing and for his rich music that is rooted in the worlds of both the East and the West, this score creates a distinctive backdrop for this fable based on childhood and warfare. With staging by Pauline Vaillancourt and the scenography of visual artist Dominique Blain, Chants Libres’ production of L’ORANGERAIE is co-produced with the Nouvel Ensemble Moderne (NEM). Conductor Lorraine Vaillancourt will act as musical director for these sixteen instrumentalists and nine great vocal performers of the Canadian stage.
