Event description

Description

Bishop Bilodeau visits a prison to supposedly hear the confession of his old classmate Simon, who has been an inmate there for 40 years. When the he arrives, however, Simon and his fellow prisoners have something else in store — they put on a play depicting the events leading up to Simon's incarceration and force the Bishop to watch. Why? Because the Bishop's younger self was solely responsible for Simon's arrest. Based on the play Les Feluettes by Michel Marc Bouchard, Genie Award-winning Lilies is an emotionally charged story that depicts the tragic consequences of repressed love in a hostile society.


This free screening is part of Edmonton Opera's Gay Film Series.

To celebrate the Alberta premiere of Lilies (Les Feluettes), Canada's first gay opera, Edmonton Opera presents a free Gay Film Series at Metro Cinema Garneau. This film series showcases the best of gay cinema from both Hollywood and Canada in the last 20 years. From intensely romantic to psychologically charged, each film explores themes of forbidden love, societal norms, and the power of passion.

Edmonton Opera's production of Lilies (Les Feluettes) plays at the Jubilee Auditorium on October 21, 24 and 27. For more information, visit our website.

Lilies community events have been made possible with the support of the Edmonton Community Foundation.
