Stacie Dunlop as Louise in March 29 Informoperal
Stacie Dunlop returns to Halifax from her developing career in Toronto to sing the title role.
Gregory Servant adds yet another character to his impressive gallery of opera roles,
as he sings the loving but oppressive Father, a part which during this opera's
post-war popularity at the Met was the property of Ezio Pinza.
Paula Rockwell will be the dutiful but sardonic Mother, and Ryan Josey
will woo Louise as her lover Julien. An ensemble of community soloists
will represent the trades people and citizens who are the soul of Paris.
Indeed, Paris is the true principal protagonist of the opera: celebrated
by the ardent poet as the source of Youth, yearned for by Louise as the means
of escaping the confines of her home and finding the happiness of Freedom,
hated by her parents as the enemy destroying the old order and its habits.
Many fans of opera know the heroine's famous aria "Depuis le jour";
now you are invited to experience more of Louise's wonderful scenes.
