Tempêtes et Passions pianist Claude Soucy accompanied Guylaine Girard and Andréanne Guay (sopranos), Luce Vachon (mezzo-soprano), Marc-André Caron (baritone) and Louis-Charles Gagnon and Guy Lessard (tenors) who performed breathtaking excerpts from Verdi’s golden triangle of operas.

In the mid-1850s, revolutionary Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901), broke with the stylistic straitjacket of the day and created three masterpieces, considered to be the “golden triangle” of his best-loved operas: Rigoletto (1851), Il Trovatore (1853) et La Traviata (1853).
