Opera Le Désert Mauve

Sunday, March 26th
Opera Le Désert Mauve – a new experimental opera by Symon Henry based on the novel Le Désert Mauve by Nicole Brossard.
“Following in Maude Laure’s footsteps, Mauve Desert – Mauve The Horizon conveys to the audience a translation of this novel—iconic to the Lesbian and Queer community, and also a landmark in Québécois literature—into my visual soundworld.” -Symon Henry

“The desert is indescribable. Reality rushes into it, rapid light. The gaze melts. Yet this morning. Very young, I was already crying over humanity. With every new year I could see it dissolving in hope and in violence. (..) Then would come the pink, the rust and the grey among the stones, the mauve and the light of dawn.”
—Nicole Brossard, “Mauve Desert” (1987)

 Tickets $25 General, $20 NME members/students/seniors.
