    • Festival Orford Musique 2023 : La Nef - Rituel pour quatre pianos


      Cédric Delorme-Bouchard teams up with BOP (Ballet-Opéra-Pantomime) to create an astonishing show of light, movement and sound based on the piano compositions of Olivier Messiaen, a leading figure in late 20th-century contemporary music. On a circular arena, four grand pianos surround a black space, an epicentre from which light and images animated by the frenetic musical score emerge. From this luminous altar, eight dancers join in the mysterious celebration, their movements embodying Messiaen’s ever-changing sacred rhythms.

      The artists worked on this production at an Orford Music artist residency.



      Repertoire Overview

      Excerpts from Olivier Messiaen’s Visions de l’Amen and Vingt Regards sur l’Enfant-Jésus; new works by Sophie Dupuis and Alexis Raynault.



      Over the years, BOP has developed large-scale multidisciplinary shows such as Le Vin herbé (2016) around classical and contemporary musical works, presenting them in unusual settings. In 2019, Le Vaisseau-cœur marked the start of a fruitful creative collaboration with Cédric Delorme-Bouchard. The work was performed by 30 singers, 4 dancers and a 30-musician orchestra.

      Pianists: Samuel Blanchette-Gagnon, Isabelle David, Mehdi Ghazi, Gaspard Tanguay-Labrosse

      Dancers: David Albert-Toth, Leslie Baker, Marc Boivin, Mélanie Chouinard, Jennyfer Desbiens, Myriam Foisy, Lucie Grégoire, Emmanuel Proulx
