Description

 

Composer David Bontemps associates with the Orchestre classique de Montréal and the BrottOpera to present the world premiere of his opera La Flambeau in Montreal and Hamilton, Canada in February 2023.

 

Composed at the onset of the pandemic, this opera conveys musically a story rooted in compelling, topical themes. Imbued with Yoruba mythology as preserved in Haitian Vodou, the text denounces corruption, misogyny and abuse of power.

Written for four characters, string orchestra and maracas, this opera is based on the eponymous play by Faubert Bolivar.

With the financial support of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the recording of the opera La Flambeau is released on ATMA Classique label in February 2024 with Suzanne Taffot, Catherine Daniel, Paul Williamson Brandon Coleman, and the OCM conducted by Alain Trudel.
