    • Une voix pour être aimée : Maria Callas

    • 2024-hs-mariacallas-eventweb


      Sophie Faucher and Marc Hervieux join forces to create a unique and original project detailing the life and career of Maria Callas. Sophie Faucher plays the eponymous diva and Marc Hervieux, in addition to directing, plays her great friend Giuseppe Di Stefano. The show marks the 100th birthday of the singer, who was found dead in her Paris apartment at the age of 53.

      Maria Callas was a woman of passion, a woman who bared her soul. In this show, we meet her during the summer of 1977 at 36 Georges-Mandel Avenue in Paris, where she is living a reclusive life of profound solitude. But that day, she welcomes her accompanying pianist Robert Sutherland and her friend Giuseppe Di Stefano, the tenor with whom she has just completed her final tour. With these two accomplices, she dives back into recording under the pretext of chronicling her life.

      It is a life that swings painfully between international stardom and her burning love for Aristotle Onassis, who left her for Jackie Kennedy, throwing her into an immense grief from which she never recovers.

      Sophie Faucher and Anne Bryan are the co-authors of Une voix pour être aimée : Maria Callas. This heartbreakingly romantic story is enhanced by music and archival footage that transports us to the very heart of the diva’s universe.

      Sophie Faucher

      Actress, author, host, and columnist, Sophie Faucher was born on April 10, 1958, in Montreal. She has enjoyed a prolific career in theater, film, television, and literature. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree: she is the daughter of actress Françoise Faucher and director and stage manager Jean Faucher.

      Sophie Faucher graduated from the Montreal Conservatory of Dramatic Arts in the class of 1978. A woman of letters in the truest sense, she has written seven books, acted in about ten films, appeared in around twenty television shows, and done extensive voice-over work… she is the French voice of Queen Latifah!


      Marc Hervieux

      Since 2009, Marc Hervieux has released ten albums with pop or classical influences, earning him three gold records and three Félix awards. Following these releases, Marc has performed shows all over Quebec with his musicians.

      Throughout his career, the tenor has made his mark on the international stage, responding to numerous prestigious invitations that have taken him from Saint Petersburg to Paris, and through Seoul, Metz, St. Paul/Minneapolis, Malaga, Taiwan, and many other places.

      On the national stage, he has sung for the Opéra de Montréal, as well as in Quebec City, Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, Victoria, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland. He has performed in concert from coast to coast with the country’s major symphony orchestras.
