"[...] so delightfully surprising and successful." - Keiko Devaux, revue Circuit, septembre 2018

"It’s Hockey Opera Hat Trick: Music, Libretto, Graphics." - Arthur Kaptainis, Classical Voice North America, 8 mai 2018

In co-production with Ensemble Musiques Nouvelles and the Ars Musica Festival, the ECM+ takes to Belgium, then back to Montréal, this great success of the Ensemble's last season.

In the post-war “film noir” style of the 1950s, Hockey Noir depicts the imaginary goings-on behind the scenes of old-time hockey. Star players, dubious bets, femmes fatales and zealous detectives crisscross each other and dance the waltz of improbable playoffs!
