Beautiful venue! Of course, I wouldn't suggest you take a trip to downtown Montreal just to see the Place des Arts, but if you have a concert or a show to see and it is being held at this venue, that's an added plus! The only thing I will say is that it is not very easy to find concession stands, so make sure you eat before arriving (many good restaurants in the area). Also, when you get to the south side of the centre, it is only accessible by foot, so the mobility-reduced, beware! :)

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.

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.

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.

Just for laughs festival and Montreal Jazz festival are just 2 of tthe great festivals that come to Place des Arts. The ambiance is amazing during the summer and all year round at the various festivals at this great downtown location. If you're in the city, you have to check it out.
