Les Grands Feux Loto-Québec
Saturday August 3 at 10:30 p.m.
Premiering this year, the Festival d'opéra de Québec is teaming up with the Grands Feux Loto-Québec to present their opening pyromusical performance with an operatic flair. A fusion of excerpts from the most well-known operas combined with a spectacular fireworks display make for quite an explosive collaboration!
The Brigade lyrique will welcome people to the Old-Port beginning at 10:00 p.m. with a musical performance. The event will be visible from both shores of the St. Lawrence.
Quartango and Marie-Josée Lord
Sunday August 4 at 8:00 p.m.
The Capitole de Québec
Opera is known for its ability to combine diverse art forms to create an original and unexpected mix. With this in mind, the Festival offers this unique evening where the formidable soprano Marie-Josée Lord will accompany the Ensemble Quartango and the Argentine dance couple Fabian and Roxana Belmonte. An impressive blend that will unite the colours, heat, and sensuality of the tango with the depth and intensity of the opera.
July 24, 25, 27, 28, 30 and 31
and August 2 3,
from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Parc du Bois-de-Coulonge (July 24 to 28) and on the Huron site of Tsonontwan (July 30 to August 3)
Originally a forest engineer, Vincent Karche one day discovered his tenor voice that would progressively lead him onto stages all over the world. A naturalised Huron, and professor at the University of Strasbourg, this fascinating character was able to combine his passion for nature and for singing to create outdoor hikes that include vocal performances: the Randolyrics.
Initially offered on the Parc du Bois-de-Coulonge, then on the Huron site of Tsonontwan, the Randolyriques offer a three-hour hike, three arias, a choir that you sing in, and countless stories about nature, trees, and the opening of the five senses.
We thank the Commission de la capitale nationale du Québec for its welcome.
