Relève en concert
Innovations en concert is proud to present the 2nd edition of our Relève en concert series with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts. Following in the footsteps of our 2012-2013 edition, we’ll introduce you to some of Montreal’s most unusual and accomplished young artists. And, for the first time, we’ll invite artists from other cities. Join us as we celebrate the young creative forces renewing our effervescent milieu!
The Bicycle Opera Project
Have you heard? There is a young opera troupe in Ontario that travels far and wide by bicycle to bring new opera to new audiences. Focusing on contemporary issues with universal appeal, they present their repertoire in intimate and often unconventional spaces. In their Montreal performance, The Bicycle Project brings scenes focused around women’s stories and featuring works by Canadian composers including the Montrealers Stacey Brown and Sébastien Harrisson.
