La La La Opera!!!

Some of you know that I have been preparing for the debut of the opera that I wrote the libretto for. It’s an original comic book opera Les Aventures de Madame Merveille and it was commissioned by the ECM+ in Montreal.

It debuts May 6th & 7th and I am so proud of it. I hope if you are in Montreal or if you know people in montreal that you will let them know about it so that they will come.

This opera is a multi-media 3 dimensional comic book experience! In four movements of different “comic books” follow the adventures of a superheroine: Madame Merveille! The romance of a woman Katherine torn between two lovers! The adventure of a boy, Francois, and his dog Pax as they try to solve the mystery of a jewel thief! And the epic sci fi battle between The Malos and Gatos!
