A reimagining of Louis Riel’s “missing” years (1870–72) and his love for the land, his people, his nation and a previously unknown woman. Li Keur, Riel’s Heart of the North, is a new music theatre work written by Métis poet/librettist Suzanne Steele and Winnipeg composer Neil Weisensel. Based on archival research, the new work is written in five languages (Cree-Michif, French-Michif, Anishinaabemowin, French and English), and features five vocalists, a narrator, Michif choirs, a fiddler, dancers and the WSO. This debut of the full length work is a cross collaboration written in the spirit of truth and reconciliation, heralding the Métis renaissance of the 21st century.
