«Finally!  L’Opéra bouffe du Québec reconnects with its audience and its stage.  Two years of imagination and resilience to ensure continuity, dynamism, regrouping its members and their passion for operetta.  We are happy and feverish to offer you a trip to Cadix, Spain! » – says Suzanne Morcel, Opéra bouffe du Québec’s president.
