Solemn Mass For a Full Moon in Summer archiveOn six moonlit Montreal balconies on a sultry August evening, eleven people tell their stories of love. Piecing together the landscape of a love affair, they trace the gradations between intoxicating highs and heartbreaking lows. Tremblay's Solemn Mass for a Full Moon in Summer was inspired by the amazing discovery of a lost mass by Hector Berlioz. Dispensing with religious themes. Tremblay uses the rituals within a traditional mass to lay bare the different characters' overpowering emotions, elicited by the magic of a glorious full moon. The result is a powerful, moving and truly unique exposition of the nature of love, in a robust earthy translation. Run time 2hrs 30mins.
Performers Liam Brennan, Robert Carr, Vincent Friell, David Gallacher, Molly Innes, John Kazek, Pauline Knowles, Elizabeth Millbank, Colette O'Neil, Hope Ross, Ann Scott Jones.
