A Word from the Director
Le Festival d'opéra de Québec 2014
Fourth edition—July 23 to August 5
The fourth edition of the Festival d'opéra de Québec features increased artistic offerings as well as important collaborative performances in various locations around the city.
This performance of the important classic The Last Judgement (Requiem de Verdi), acclaimed in Cannes and Moscow, is enhanced with ultra-modern staging techniques and spectacular direction.
Audiences of all ages are once again invited to the Festival, especially families who whose teens and young children can be introduced to opera thanks to two productions: L'Enfant et les sortilèges and La plus belle fleur du jardin impérial.
Several activities celebrating opera in all of its forms are on offer, including a concert with the Les Violons du Roy and Alan Curtis as well as the return of the Grands Feux Loto-Québec.
The festivities will take over the city once again thanks to performances by the Brigade lyrique, to the Music Al Fresco performances, La grande histoire chantée de la musique lyrique and Tempêtes et passions.
We wish you all an exceptional Festival d'opéra!
