Inspired by the life and work of Marguerite Yourcenar, this Quebec creation by librettist Hélène Dorion and the late Marie-Claire Blais is set to music by composer Éric Champagne. Focused mainly on her relationships with Grace Frick and Jerry Wilson, the opera highlights the tensions that shaped Marguerite Yourcenar’s life as a woman, companion, and writer.

Marguerite Yourcenar was a novelist who strongly impacted the literary world of the 20th century. Torn between the discipline which writing demanded and her thirst for freedom, between the stability of emotional balance and her own passionate nature, she gathered implacable strength out of these dualities, enabling her to break with the social conventions of her time.
