1. Classical Concert
Rosalie Lane Lépine, soprano, accompanied by Hakim Boudaa, pianist, will offer us a repertoire of love songs. The duo will present a potpourri of French melodies, Lieder, and Italian operatic airs that speak of love. You will hear excerpts from the greatest composers of past centuries, including Mozart, Rossini, Schumann, Strauss and Poulenc. Come and listen to Cherubino whisper sweet nothings into your ear, or to Queen Semiramide as she longs for her lover!
2. Humorous bilingual public reading with Faux-amis
Friday December 24th. The situation is critical. Saydie, video game store coordinator from Montreal, is in Quebec city. Her mission: to recover the figurines that Nicolas, a young indomitable sculptor, has held off on delivering, and to bring them to Toronto as quickly as possible. Travelling together from the Capitale-Nationale to the Queen’s City becomes the only possible compromise, but the holiday season prolongs the journey. Faux-amis talks about social hierarchy, cultural and linguistic conflicts, the Canadian landscape and undoubtedly of budding love.
Get ready to laugh and to have a wonderful evening!
