Serge Denoncourt made his Pacific Opera debut as director of Les Feluettes, a co-commission and co-production with Opéra de Montréal, which premiered in 2016 to great acclaim in Montreal. Serge directed the second staging of the opera, in Victoria. He directed the play on which the opera is based (Michel Marc Bouchard’s Les Feluettes), in 2002 at Montreal’s Espace Go (winning the People’s Choice Masque and Masque for Best Production) and in 2005 in English, at San Francisco’s American Conservatory Theatre.
Serge Denoncourt is a dynamic presence on the theatre scene. The former director of Théâtre du Trident, co-founder and artistic director of Théâtre de l’Opsis for ten years, and a renowned stage director, he has combined his love of the great classics with his interest in the 20th century repertoire and Quebec theatre. He is also active in opera and in other forms of popular entertainment, directing shows by Arturo Brachetti and Eros Ramazzotti, and working with actors on the Cirque du Soleil series Solström. He also designed and directed the Cirque du Soleil’s Believe in Las Vegas.
