Presentation

The famous Greek myths of Ovid’sMetamorphoses, have become fascinating opera masterpieces in the hands of the two greatest French composers.

The performance will begin with Acteon by Charpentier, the deeply moving story of a young hunter turned into a deer by Diana, the goddess of hunting. Acteon’s metamorphosis takes place on the stage – a tour de force for the singer of the lead role. He is then hunted by his own men and dogs. After the interval, Opera Atelier will present Pygmalion, a rococo masterpiece by Rameau, in which a beautiful statue is transformed into a living and breathing woman through the power of love.

The performance will open with Opera Atelier’s first Canadian commission, Inception, for solo baroque violin and contemporary dance. This creation was designed as a theatre piece leading to Rameau’s famous overture. Interpreted by the composer and violinist Edwin Huizinga and choreographed by Tyler Gledhill, an artist of the Atelier Ballet, Inception is literally a pas-de-deux for musician and dancer that transcends the scenic space for this evening on the theme of metamorphosis.

Production: Opera Atelier Toronto
