Théâtre Maisonneuve - Place des Arts Book

Resurrecting the power of Mozart's uncompleted and mythical opus Requiem, the dynamic duo consisting of composer Fabrizio Cassol and choreographer Alain Platel forces us to look death in the face.

Fourteen musicians and singers from every continent invite the audience to a Mass where opera, jazz and African rhythms accompany L. as she takes her last breath. Both a release and a rush of emotions, the piece crystallizes the final moments of a woman's life, sublimating them in a sacred ode.

It is not adieu, but a call to life.
