Kellylee Evans

Ian Tamblyn

Sleeping Rough is a new opera about a homeless man named Ted and his rollercoaster journey from a dysfunctional childhood to life on the street. With the libretto written by award winning poet Sandra Nicholls, Roddy Ellias has created a score that crosses musical and expressive genres combining elements of classical music, jazz and popular music. The opera is even more unique because the main roles are played by puppets created by Noreen Young (OC) and the singers behind those puppets: Kellylee Evans, Helene Brunet, Felicity Williams and Ian Tamblyn – are artists chosen by Ellias for their highly expressive and personal styles of singing.

This much anticipated work has been generously funded by the City of Ottawa, the Ontario Arts Council and the Canada Council.

Sleeping Rough est un nouvel opéra de Roddy Ellias portant sur un itinérant appelé Ted et son parcours en montagnes russes, depuis son enfance dans une famille dysfonctionnelle jusqu’à sa vie dans la rue. À partir d’une intrigue de la renommée poétesse Sandra Nicholls, le compositeur a écrit une partition qui s’abreuve à diverses sources expressives et musicales, la musique classique, le jazz et la musique populaire. L’œuvre se démarque encore davantage par son recours à des marionnettes pour jouer les rôles principaux. Derrière ces créations de Noreen Young se tiennent les chanteurs Kellylee Evans, Hélène Brunet, Felicity Williams et Ian Tamblyn, choisis par Roddy Ellias pour leur interprétation très expressive et personnelle.

Cette œuvre, qu’on se réjouit déjà d’entendre, a bénéficié d’un généreux soutien de la part de la Ville d’Ottawa ainsi que du Conseil des arts de l’Ontario et du Conseil des arts du Canada.
