Presented as part of Montreal’s Black History Month
and in collaboration with Brott Opera

In this world premiere chamber opera, Haitian-Quebec composer David Bontemps has created a world of mystical melodies imbued with Afro-Haitian musical idioms that melds with the textual expression of Haitian librettist and playwright Faubert Bolivar

Drawing on West African mythology and Haitian vodou traditions, this opera criticizes corruption, misogyny, and the abuse of power. 

It will be sung by a cast of distinguished Black opera singers and brought to life through dramatic staging and lighting. To read more about the synopsis of the opera, click on the link below.
