After 30 years as an iconic work of Canadian theatre, Quebec playwright Michel Marc Bouchard's Lilies (Les Feluettes) premiered as an opera at Opéra de Montréal in 2016. Praised by critics and audiences for its lush, romantic music, Lilies explores a passionate love story between two young men in early 1900s Quebec. Innocence quickly turns into deception and murder as the star-crossed lovers struggle through their feelings against the norms of society.

Composer Kevin March's lavish and cinematic score "harkens to 19th century Romantic composers" (Times Argus), featuring "waltzes, old-timey songs, French Canadian folk tunes and quotes from Scott Joplin and Claude Debussy" (Times Colonist). Lilies has been hailed as "a pure masterpiece" (Boucle Magazine) and its highly anticipated Alberta premiere is the perfect celebration of Canada's 150th anniversary — don't miss the opera that received standing ovations from Montreal and Victoria audiences!
