Les Aventures de Madame Merveille! Comic Book! Opera!

I am here in Montreal, gearing up for the premiere of the opera that I wrote the libretto for (and conceived of the concept for!) Les Aventures de Madame Merveille, a live comic book opera, which was commissioned by ECM+ and the amazing artistic director Veronique Lacroix!

It’s an amazingly fun experience.  The music by Andre Ristic is fantastic.  The stage direction by Marie Josee Chartier is wonderful.  The art work by Michael Cho, Pascal Girard, Scott Hepburn and Cameron Stewart, projected and designed by Fou Malade  is incredible.  The orchestra! The singers!  Oh! The singers! They are mind blowing! Bravo to Pascale Beaudin, Pierre Etienne Bergeron, Michele Motard and Michiel Schrey.

I am so excited by this piece. It’s been almost three years in the making. And I am so happy to be able to share it with you!

So I hope you will come!  This Thursday and Friday May 6 & 7th to our show!

(or if you are a fantastic theater somewhere in the world, you should bring us to you!)
