“Concerts, Opera, Ballet, Theatre and more”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

This is Montreal's opera and ballet theatre of sorts ..it is where the main ballets, operas and serious classical concerts are presented, as well as plays, modern dance, musicals and other genres including circus -- like Cirque Éloize (will return in autumn) and a fantastic recent premiere of Daniele Finzi Pasca's La Verità.

The complex itself has been revived and revamped with the addition of an excellent concert hall, and modern lights and features in the halls and outside the arts centre.

“Grands Ballets performance”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

I went to place the arts for another great performance of the Grands Ballets de Montreal. This time they were performing Danz & Toot.
If you like modern and/or classic ballet it worth to go and see their performance. The troupe is young and professional. One of Montreal best assets.

“Worth Visiting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

This performing arts centre has number of great theatres and an array of great events happening throughout the year. Even if you don't have time to go to a show, it is worth visiting this beautiful space in the middle of the city.
As the name implies this place is all about arts. Those who can't go inside can sit in the vast outer space and blend into the environment.

“Always a good experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Beautiful arts center is Montreal's answer to Lincoln Center (sort of). Many great theaters have an array of operas, ballets, theater, dance extravaganzas, musicals, etc. We visit as often as possible, and are always pleased!
