A third year for the Cirque du Soleil Tribute Series inspired by one of Quebec's greatest lyricists
December 14, 2016
Trois-Rivières, December 14, 2016 - The entire team of the Corporation des Évènements de Trois-Rivières is pleased to officially announce the third show of the Cirque du Soleil Tribute Series for the 2017 summer season. This show, created and produced by 45 DEGREES, the special events and projects company of the Cirque du Soleil, will pay tribute to lyricist Luc Plamondon, a leading figure in Quebec’s music industry.
"We are very honoured that Luc Plamondon, a great artist from here, with a very good international career, has accepted our proposal to bring his texts on stage for the third edition of our Cirque du Soleil Tribute Series. Rich in symbols, his songs will be a great source of inspiration for our teams! This is an event not to be missed this year in Trois-Rivières!" Says Yasmine Khalil, executive producer of the show and president of 45 DEGREES.
Under the creative direction of Daniel Fortin, this show created exclusively for the Cogeco Amphitheatre, directed by Jean-Guy Legault and a musical direction by Jean-Phi Goncalves, will surely delight our audience.
"I am very pleased that Cirque du Soleil and the Corporation des Événements de Trois-Rivières have thought of me for this third edition of the Tribute Series. This attention rejoices and honours me. Last summer, the tribute to Robert Charlebois dazzled me with the modernity of the projections, the inventive musical arrangements and the staging that skilfully blends of circus and dance, as well as integrating the young Trifluvian population on stage - I expect no less for the next year! » says Mr. Luc Plamondon.
"For the past three years, the Cirque du Soleil has been the foundation of the Cogeco Amphitheatre, a tradition that has taken place in the hearts of Quebeckers. I am confident that this third show of the Tribute Series will also delight fans of music and entertainment. This will be a great way to launch the 2017 summer season. Mr. Plamondon has created cult songs of Québec music over the years. » Said Mr. Roger Picard, President of the Corporation.
