Right in the heart of historic Quebec City, this magnificent theatre has hosted nearly a century's worth of the greatest in arts and entertainment.

Once used mostly for cultural events, it has evolved into much more than a concert hall.

Since its reopening in 1992, this prestigious and storied hall amazes both its renowned performers and their audience.

Le Capitole de Quebec is a unique and magical place. Majestic stairway, gilded trim, luxurious railings, it is filled with memories of a bygone era.

A Elvis Presley Based show from the years at the international Hotel in Las Vegas. An Amazing and talented show. The band was done as they would have appeared during the Elvis era, recreating all the talented musicians behind Elvis at the time. The people from Quebec were very pleasurable and made me feel welcome even though they had limited... More

A fantastic experience, woderful programme and very enjoyable evening. The theatre is lush looking inside, velvet curtains lift and fall for perfommances and a good ambiance. The forfait with a meal looked interesting but not available when we booked, but view from balconywas great.

What a waste of money: A man in an Elvis suit and wig singing Elvis songs. He did not come close to impersonating the King. So disappointed. Martin Fountain lacked any sort of personality and his jokes were off place and tacky. You could not suspend your disbelief for a moment. He had a few Elvis moves that he repeated... More

We were in town for the Festival and saw that this theater had a show featuring Pink Floyd's The Wall album, The Wall Theatre Experience is currently the only production in the world presenting the group's oeuvre in its entirety. It was absolutely amazing and if you are a fan do yourself a favor and catch this performance.

We saw the Elvis Experience at the Theatre Capitole in Quebec City ... the staff was very helpful when purchasing tickets in advance, and the guidance to our seats was very helpful. The facility itself was very comfortable, and our view of the performance, although at high altitude (because we purchased tickets at the last minute), provided us with an... More

This is the place to see the Elvis experience. This show started years ago as Elvis story and became a must during summer in Quebec city. If you missed it in Quebec see it soon in Las Vegas. This show is approved by the Presley family.
