Episode 2 - Clairette Oddera

_photo2.jpgWhen Clairette Oddera was a little girl, her father used to take her to the opera in the southern French city of Marseille. Her ears were opened wide. When she arrived in Montreal in 1950, she had planned to sing a few songs and sail back home. However, she sensed that French-Canadians were hungry for something more. Clairette opened a nightclub and gave young people the stage. . Clairette's passions helped spark Quebec's cultural revolution and kept her in front of audiences until she was 88 years old.

This documentary on Clairette Oddera was by David Gutnick in Montreal.
