This new recording features the Ensemble contemporain de Montréal, soprano Florie Valiquette, mezzo-soprano Krisztina Szabó, and vocal ensemble Queen of Puddings Music Theatre. The human voice is at the heart of Sokolović’s work, so that it is fitting that her vocal works Sirens, Tanzer Lieder and Pesma are featured on this ATMA debut recording.

Florie will give her voice to the french version of Coraline at Opéra de Lille in November 2018
Nearly a century and a half after the famous Alice, England conquered the world with a new child heroine: Coraline. But where Alice was the toy of events, Coraline is a modern little girl of the twentieth century, mischievous and cunning, who does not let it count ... even if it is a tale. And that's good, because the world she's going to discover behind the door of her house is much darker than the world of wonders. Another side of the mirror where everything seems perfect, to a small formality: she will only need to sew buttons on her eyes. Let's see ...
Huge success of children's literature became a cartoon popular on the big screen, Coraline finds today a new life in the opera, thanks to Mark-Anthony Turnage, composer acclaimed by the British scene as much as by big North American orchestras, and no doubt became the most famous in his kingdom. Bringing together classically and jazz inspirations, modernism and tradition, he imagined an opera full of swing, punch and twists. With the prestigious Royal Opera House in London, the Lille Opera is offering this family evening, a life-size opera that offers young people the pleasures of a colorful and sumptuous spectacle, funny and squeaky ... and rich in delicious frights.
