For this fourth edition at the Phi Centre, the DIE POD DIE is coming back with two major works from the French repertoire; Histoire de Melody Nelson by Serge Gainsbourg and L'enfant assassin des mouches de Jean-Claude Vannier.
This musical event sets the stage for the Gainsbourg symphonique concert at Les FrancoFolies de Montréal coming this June 10 and 11. To mark the 25th anniversary of Serge Gainsbourg’s death, Les FrancoFolies is giving music fans the chance to hear Jane Birkin’s soft and haunting voice together with the imposing power of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra (MSO). Simon Leclerc, a leading Quebec figure in symphonic pop, will conduct the MSO for this historic concert. Arthur H and the MSO will open the evening by performing Histoire de Melody Nelson in its entirety.
Arthur H will also be at the Phi Centre on April 17th to present Serge Gainsbourg’s first concept album. Laurent Saulnier, Vice-President, programming and production at Équipe Spectra, will also join the discussion.
Presented in collaboration with les FrancoFolies de Montréal and DIE POD DIE.
