The Orchestre Métropolitain is presenting a symphonic adaptation of the story Le pelleteur de nuages (The Cloud Shoveller) by Simon Boulerice. This poetic and magical tale is about a young, imaginative boy named Elliot with vitiligo. Published by La courte échelle in 2018, the story tackles themes of difference, diversity, stigma, inclusivity and self-esteem.
Under the baton of Geneviève Leclair, music moves the story forward while introducing the audience to the main characters: Elliot, his father and his mother. Each of their perspectives are set to music by three Canadian composers, representing each character’s unique world.
