Harry Somers - Louis Riel

Jun 02, 2017 49:50

The story of the polarizing Métis leader and Canada’s westward expansion is told in this landmark work. Composed by Harry Somers for our nation’s centennial in 1967, this uniquely Canadian contribution to the opera world is returning on the work’s 50th anniversary, and will help mark the 150th anniversary of Canada’s Confederation.

The National Arts Centre has joined with the Canadian Opera Company to proudly present this new production of Louis Riel.

Music by Harry Somers

Libretto by Mavor Moore with the collaboration of Jacques Languirand
