[Theatre]

In his Dragon trilogy saga, the center of creative gravity was China. Here, Robert Lepage casts himself in the art-imitating-life role of a Quebecois author summoned to Paris at the behest of the Opera Garnier. His commission? To write the libretto for a lyrical children’s work based on a fable by the famous Danish storyteller. But the real challenge lies in reconciling his task with the odd characters – including a dog – he encounters in Paris.
