Le Devoir | Ballet Opera Pantomime’s “Le vaisseau-cœur (heart-ship)”: with a heart this big!  – in French

But this new project, Le vaisseau-coeur, goes further. It touches us deeply, viscerally, because the heroines of this well thought-out and well-crafted show are 25 young girls from the Joseph-François-Perrault school who carry it on their shoulders.

Here is a project that impresses us, but that will mark them for life. Engaged in the adventure on a voluntary basis, outside of any school program, they have memorized Poulenc and Messiaen, plus the gestures, movements and staging, while ensuring a vocal quality and intonation in formidable works. Such an accomplishment is deeply moving.
