Les Feluettes, a new opera co-commissioned by Pacific Opera Victoria and l’Opera de Montreal, premiered to critical and audience acclaim in Montreal last year. The celebrated production comes to Victoria to conclude Pacific Opera Victoria’s 2016-17 opera season.

In 1912 a group of boys at a Quebec college rehearse Gabriele D’Annunzio’s sensual play, The Martyrdom of Saint Sebastian.  A devastating love triangle results in the death of one boy and the imprisonment of another. A third boy becomes a Bishop and years later is made to watch as prisoners re-enact the tragedy.

Based on the play by Michel Marc Bouchard, with the libretto by the playwright, Les Feluettes is a romantic drama of startling beauty. ComposerKevin March weaves a musical tapestry of waltz rhythms, French Canadian folk tunes and the sophisticated lushness of Debussy.

The production is directed by Serge Denoncourt with set design by Guillaume Lord and costume design by the late Francois BarbeauTimothy Vernon conducts the Victoria Symphony.
