The final selection of the evening from Rossini’s comedic L’occasione fa il ladro (Opportunity Makes a Thief) featured Carole-Anne Roussel, Keven Geddes, Guy Lessard (tenor and co-founder of Tempêtes & Passions), Marc-André Caron and Émilie Tremblay. A case of mixed-up luggage and identities set the stage for much confusion and comedy.

It was a dark and stormy night, a perfect setting for a concert by Tempêtes & Passions in the ornate Chapelle du Musée de l’Amérique francophone in Old Quebec.
