“Le Jongleur de Notre-Dame”
Grammy-winning soprano and Cecilia Concerts Musician-In-Residence Suzie LeBlanc stars in a concert performance of the opera "Le Jongleur de Notre-Dame" by composer Jules Massenet Sunday, April 9th 2:00 p.m. in Halifax.
Massenet, one of the most popular of the late French Romantics, is well known for many operatic masterpieces and listeners to this upcoming performance will agree that “Le Jongleur de Notre-Dame” is no exception to Massenet’s talent for memorable music and affecting theatre. Bass-baritones Gregory Servant and Jon Paul Decosse sing the principal male roles, and the opera also features Leander Mendoza, John Lindsay Botten, and Alan Manchester along with the Opera Nova Scotia chamber choir. Lynette Wahlstrom is pianist, and Walter H. Kemp conducts. Suzie LeBlanc tackles the male lead role.
