Yannick Nézet-Séguin To Collaborate on Chloé Robichaud’s New Film

By Francisco Salazar

Conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin is acting as artistic director and musical consultant for Chloé Robichaud’s upcoming film.

The conductor is working with the director on her third film “Les jours heureux” in Montreal and the Orchestre Métropolitain, of which Nézet-Séguin is Music Director, will record the music and will appear in the film.

The new film stars Sophie Desmarais as an orchestra conductor who has a difficult relationship with her father, played by Sylvain Marcel.

This is the latest film Nézet-Séguin collaborates on. Recently he collaborated with Bradley Cooper, who attended concerts of the Philadelphia Orchestra and Metropolitan Opera in preparation for his movie “Maestro” about the life of Leonard Bernstein.

The two later collaborated in performances of “Candide” with the Philadelphia Orchestra alongside Carey Mulligan.
