A chamber opera of terrace songs
Very big emotions! In the modern world they can still be found in opera… and on stadium terraces: passionate love, undying devotion, and emotional highs and lows. In Fribourg, these perfectly sum up the relationship that supporters have with the local ice hockey team. Opéra Louise circumvents these two worlds by transforming the chants of Gottéron’s faithful followers into an absurd and joyous chamber opera. It is an everyday story of love at first sight, rivalry and a happy ending for the protagonists, who can only express themselves through fan incantations. A fitting tribute to the universal language of opera and terrace songs.
