Le loup de Noel (Ste. Genevieve)

Conte musical – Musical Tale for children

On Christmas Eve, a grumpy and lonely wolf feels hungry and sad. He is soon attracted by the lights coming out of the church of a nearby village. What he’ll discover inside will bring out the Christmas spirit in everyone. The traditional tale is followed by reels and songs by Bon Débarras, a traditional music group, that will bring the whole family on their feet! – Presented in French

Un vieux loup des Laurentides maussade et solitaire, n’a plus rien à manger. Affamé, il descend au village la veille de Noël, où il est attiré par les lumières de l’église. En pleine messe de minuit, il s’approche de la crèche, et tente de croquer le petit Jésus… en cire! Sur scène, ce conte de Claude Aubry est raconté par Stéphan Côté qui nous transporte dans un Québec d’antan où la messe de minuit et le réveillon étaient au cœur des célébrations. Les musiciens du groupe Bon Débarras accompagnent à merveille l’histoire avec ses reels, ses turlutes et ses chansons. Le tout culmine en un réveillon festif qui fera chanter et danser petits et grands!
