This was one of the most wonderful performances we have seen on the Nutcracker and we've seen many! Plus you can get to the Place des Arts by walking the underground. We had a wonderful time and it was decorated for Christmas so all and all a great day out.

If you are in Montreal, check what performances are at the Place des Arts. We went to see a performance by Les Grands Ballets, and the ballet was magical. Full orchestra, stunning dance, wonderful stage design. A world class production. The venue itself was beautiful with good guest amenities.

We just saw "The Book of Mormon" and, although the production was great, the acoustics of the theater itself let a bit to be desired. It was often difficult to hear the dialogue/lyrics above the music. In speaking with a couple who frequents productions at other venues in the Place des Arts, this is common at this particular theater. Overall,... More

This was right across the street from our hotel with a wonderful selection of small eateries and an interesting museum. There was also a colorful art installation during our stay.
