The OSM is a popular attraction in the city. And the audience is much younger than you might imagine. So much for classical music dying. Tickets for the ODM are both pricey, and hard to come by. Most concerts are sold out. The new concert hall is taking some getting used to. The acoustics are quite incredible. The clarity is... More

World class orchestra in a world class venue, the Place des Arts is a fantastic sight in its own, especially the large hall which the OSM plays in. I had a wonderful time seeing two different concerts here. Dress nicely, and don't make any noises. I promise you will have an enjoyable evening.
