ABOUT THE WORK

An operatic performance piece created in 1995, in coproduction with the Montreal Contemporary Art museum (Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal), Chants du Capricorne was conceived by the soprano and stage director Pauline Vaillancourt, who presented the piece at Vooruit in Ghent, Belgium, when she received the Prix d’interprète de musique contemporaine Flandres-Québec.
