Le timide à la cour

From September 28 to October 22, 2016

Théâtre Denise Pelletier

The appointment of Claude Poissant as Artistic Director of the Théâtre Denise Pelletier last year brought with it a definite breath of fresh air to Montreal East’s leading theatre institution. Whether on the main stage or in the more intimate Fred-Barry hall, the entire space is given over to young artists, who perform both contemporary and traditional repertoire. To open the season, the troupe La Banquette Arrière (bursting with hugely talented actors) had the brilliant idea of taking on a major Spanish text from 1611... Very funny and very lively, Director Alexandre Fecteau’s offering promises to be one of the big hits of the season!

Kent Nagano celebrates the Montréal Metro

From October 20 to October 23, 2016

We know that Montreal is a major cultural metropolis, a hub for the performing arts, dance, circus and so on, but do we actually realize that our orchestra, the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, figures among the best in the world? This is something that everybody should know about, especially on the eve of the outstanding season being prepared for us by Maestro Nagano. The OSM has always been a reflection of Montreal’s identity, and never more so than when the series of concerts celebrating the 50th anniversary of Montréal’s Métro is given! For the occasion, the Orchestra will inaugurate a brand new instrument, one both imposing and magnificent – the octobass. Over 12 feet in length, this instrument symbolizes the OSM’s unique position in the world’s musical landscape.

À la douleur que j’ai, by Virginie Brunelle

From November 23 to November 26, 2016

Usine C

Virginie Brunelle is undoubtedly one of the standard-bearers of the revival of contemporary dance in Montréal. Following numerous choreographies hailed by both the critics AND the public (we don’t always enjoy both in life!), she is presenting her latest creation in Usine C (one of my favourite Montréal places). This show is sure to reach the peaks of all the emotion and intensity we have come to expect from her.
