Place des Arts is the arts center of Montreal. Operas, choirs, orchestras, plays, ballets, musicals and so much more are present at this center in the heart of downtown Montreal. For the past few years, plays on ice have taken place as well. Place des Arts has many different sorts of arts presented, for every taste! The majority of the presentations are in French. Montrealers are extremely proud of their French art & culture, and this is one of the places they are most proud of! A plus is that the ''basement'' of the center is the metro, so its access is very easy. Parking is definitely not a plus on Ste-Catherine, the street of the Center.   The building itself is extremely beautiful: modern, with an interesting architecture. This is THE place to go to discover amazing acting, dancing, music, etc. A must-do in Montreal!
