Soundstreams and Canadian Stage announce inaugural collaboration with North American premiere of chamber opera Julie

Soundstreams recently announced its exciting inaugural collaboration with Canadian Stage, as the acclaimed theatre company revealed Julie, a chamber opera by Belgian composer Philippe Boesmans, as one of the anchor productions of its globetrotting 2015/2016 season.
Recognized internationally as one of the pre-eminent composers of his generation, this marks the first time Boesmans' work will be performed in North America. Based on the play Miss Julie by Swedish playwright August Strindberg, Julie will feature an all-Canadian cast and will be directed by Canadian Stage Artistic Director Matthew Jocelyn with music direction by Les Dala, whose most recent appearance with Soundstreams saw him conducting the company’s 30th anniversary tour to China.
