Dion Mazerolle stars as Ramos in the Chants Libres production of The Trials of Patricia Isasa; Kristin Norderval, composer, Naomi Wallace librettist.
The opera is based on the life story of the Argentine architect and human rights activist Patricia Isasa. In 1976 Patricia Isasa – then a high school student, and just 16 years old – was abducted, imprisoned and tortured by the military junta that ruled Argentina from 1976 to 1983. Isasa was one of as many as 30,000 citizens who were “disappeared” in Argentina, often for activities such as belonging to a union, working with the poor or voicing opposition to economic and political policies. Very few survived.
Based on personal conversations held with Patricia Isasa in 2010, the opera raises question about the amnesty given to highly placed people in government, the use of torture for political reasons, and the need to act with urgency.
May 21 – 28
Daniel Cabena debuts with L’Opera de Montreal in the role of Lydie-Anne de Rozier in Les Feluettes (by Quebec playwright Michel Marc Bouchard and Australian composer Kevin March). Premiered in Montreal in 1987, the play has been produced over 50 times throughout the world.
In 1952, a group of prisoners led by Simon perform a play for a bishop (Bilodeau). which relates a series of events that occurred forty years earlier, when Simon and Bilodeau were at school together in the Lac St.-Jean region. This “Play within a play”, in which men perform both male and female roles, has captured the public’s imagination with its theatrical qualities and emotional resonance.
