On 21 November, the choir and FADOQ Club de Sainte-Aurélie present “The king of the forest”, a theatrical and musical Christmas story written and directed by Harold Beauceron artist Gilbert. Part of the profits will go to the Sainte-Aurelie factory.
Having offered a few times a Christmas concert a few years ago, the choir this year offers a more theatrical show. “The king of the forest” tells the touching story of the eldest of a family that decides, on Christmas Eve, to fetch a tree in the forest to his mother despite an announced storm. Highlighting the courage of the men of old who spent the winter in the yards and the work of women who devoted themselves to prepare Eve, this tale brings together more than twenty actors-singers of Sainte-Aurélie and surrounding .
For the public, this is a good opportunity to hear many arias and classical songs of the holiday season under the able musical direction of Marlene Maheux and Lucille Thompson.
Born in Sainte-Aurélie, the author and director Harold Gilbert enthusiastically participates in this project which he sought to infuse originality and a different beauty of its previous productions.
“The king of the forest” will be presented Saturday, November 21 at 19 h 30 at the church of Sainte-Aurélie. Tickets for this unique performance are priced at $ 12 each. You can buy tickets at Sainte-Aurélie at Alimentation Louis-Jacques Poulin at the factory at Camellia Show and with Carmelle Gonthier (418-593-6573).
