Opéra de Rue, to fight against homelessness
- On the agenda
It is a one-of-a-kind event that will take place at the Montreal Opera on May 15th. "Opera de Rue", a collaboration between the Montreal Opera and Le Sac à Dos, has been created by twelve people who have been confronted to homelessness.
The Opera, called "Humanitudes", is the result of a long-term work between twelve people who have experienced, once in their lives, homelessness, and artists from the lyric arts, drama and music. The event is an idea from Le Sac à Dos, which aims at helping the homeless (or people most likely to become homeless) reintegrate society, socially and economically speaking.
All the donations which will be collected during the event will go to Le Sac à Dos.
The event will start at 5:00 PM with a cocktail reception at Place Deschamps, followed by a recital from Marie-Josée Lorde, and the opera "Humanitudes".
Participants will receive a receipt from the Canada Revenue Agency for their donation.
