Images de Sappho


Concert Hall, Conservatoire de Musique de Montréal
7:30pm, 29-30 January 2015

A coproduction with ECM+ and presented at the Conservatoire de Musique de Montréal, Images de Sappho is the first achievement of BOP’s aims with regard to Dance performances. Indeed, the “operatorio” Orpheus on Sappho’s Shore by the Montreal composer Luna Pearl Woolf was presented with an original choreography and stage production by Emmanuelle Lussier-Martinez. The show was also the opportunity to discover Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Five Images after Sappho, of which this was the Canadian premiere.
