if you're in Montreal in December you must go see the Nutcracker (Casse-Noisette). Although I wouldn't suggest bringing children under the age of 8 just because the show is 2 hours long and if they get restless they are ruining it for other patrons (like the family with the 3 year old sitting behind us)...

The Artistic Director, Gradimir Pankov is brilliant and over the past 14 years, has made Les Grands Ballets a world class company. This original ballet by renowned choreographer Stijn Celis was dedicated to Maestro Pankov who has done so much to enhance and modernise the ballet world. We enjoyed the skilled performance immensely. However, my very favourite of their ballets... More

Les Grands Ballets are the company to see if you want to see ballet at its absolute best. I have seen all the premier companies of the world perform, and I would rank them in the top 5. The complete attention to the artistic whole of the productions is superb. Even if you have been to the Nutcracker over 100x... More

Definitely a world-class organization. If you enjoy ballet, you will not be disappointed. Montrealers are spoiled by the variety of good cultural entertainment to be had in their city.

It has been a long time but fond memories of The Nutcracker Suite at Place des Arts hold a special place in my heart at Christmas. A must see for anyone and at anytime.

Dancers are amazing and so are Gradimir's productions. The annual winter production of the Nutcracker is a must for children, then there the international artistic directors brought in that introduce the greater public to contemporary dance.

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colorful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
