The play debuts with a mini-musical presentation of Once Upon A Mattress followed by an homage to composer Jule Styne (Funny Girl, Gypsy, Bells Are Ringing) ranks as one of the undisputed architects of the American musical theater. The cast ends the act one with a classic touch by singing Circle of Life composed by Elton John for Disney’s 1994 animated film The Lion King.

In act two, the tribute to Jule Styne continues with titles such as All I Need Is The Girl, Just In Time, Don’t Rain On My Parade and much more. Switching from past to present, the performers brilliantly entertain the audience with vibrant voices and dynamic choreographies from beginning to end.

Volta is the recent show presented by Cirque du Soleil in world premiere under the Big Top in Montreal’s Old Port until July 23rd. Directed by Bastien Alexandre, Volta is a modern story about the freedom to choose and being true to oneself.

Inspired in part by the adventurous spirit of action sports culture, Cirque du Soleil features for the first time acrobatic BMX and Parkour driven by mesmerizing melodies. While celebrating freedom as a movement, Volta delivers strong messages about modern society, acceptance and self love.

I was particularly impressed by the elegance expressed by this young acrobat during her solo performance. In both acts, costumes designed by Zaldy Goco were stunning and colorful in reference of street arts and characters identity. Moreover, performers give an amazing show on stage and bring this magical touch we love about Cirque du Soleil.

Dialogues des Carmélites presented by Opéra de Montréal

Dialogues des Carmélites is a French opera in three acts by Francis Poulenc. First created in an Italian version, the premiere of the French version took place at the Opéra de Paris in 1957.

The action takes place in 1789, an historic year marked by the French Revolution. Blanche De La Force, the main protagonist, is a young Parisian aristocrat with high-strung and fearful nature. Trying to escape the world where she does not know how to live, she announces to her father her intention to enter the convent of Carmel in Compiègne.

Wrecked by the French Revolution, religious orders are dissolved and the nuns condemned to death but Blanche managed to escape. She is going to live the last days of the congregation…

This contemporary opera plunges us into a world dominated by violence, oppression and death. With a touch of finesse created by sacred music, we face the fear of death through the eyes of Blanche…
