In accordance with government directives, Place des Arts has suspended its activities. These measures have been put into effect due to circumstances relating to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic which are beyond our control. Consequently, the Requiem pour L. concert has been cancelled. Ticket holders will be contacted by email about the procedures to be implemented.
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.
