Happening in Montréal this month:

Édition avril/ 2015

Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal (2014-2015)

April 01, 02, 11, 14, 15, 16, 19, 22, 23 & 26, 2015 – Place Des Arts/ Maison symphonique

The history of the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal today is intimately associated with the Maison symphonique de Montréal, where we have already begun a fourth season. Our 2014-1015 program will include a vast body of music ranging from the Viennese Classical Style to the great symphonic works of the nineteenth-century Romantics and onward to Mahler, Sibelius, Shostakovich, Debussy and Ravel. We invite you to discover and enjoy the associations between these works, with room also for less familiar works and new compositions. The 150th anniversaries of Richard Strauss, Carl Nielsen and Jean Sibelius provide a special occasion this year to celebrate each of these composers, in turn, as a major figure.

Orchestre Métropolitain de Montréal (2014-2015)

April 12, 17, 2015 – Place Des Arts & Various Locations

The upcoming season will feature more programs and several exciting additions - not least the new concert hall at Place des Arts. Combining exceptional acoustic qualities with a closer proximity between the musicians and the audience, this new hall is sure to foster an intimate and powerful concert experience.

Les Grands Ballets Canadiens – Anna Karenina, EIFMAN BALLET, ST-PETERSBURG THEATER

April 15 to 18, 2015 – Place des Arts/ Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier

Eifman’s Anna Karenina is a story of passion, rejection and self-destruction, a work of raw emotions. Having cut out the counterplot lines of Leo Tolstoy’s novel, choreographer Boris Eifman focuses on the Anna-Karenin-Vronsky love triangle. Offering both classical romance and modern technique, this Russian ballet will captivate with its magnificence.

Marvels and Mirages of Orientalism

From Spain to Morocco, Benjamin-Constant in His Time

January 31 to May 31, 2015 – Museum of Fine Arts

In the depths of winter, the Museum is hanging the sun on its walls with this exhibition on Orientalism, a first for Canada, based on extensive original research. The show unveils the forgotten figure of a master of the genre, Benjamin-Constant…

Following in the footsteps of artists like Delacroix, whom he admired, this flamboyant painter’s Orientalism is similar to that of Henri Regnault, Mariano Fortuny, Georges Clairin and Jean-Paul Laurens, who also figure largely in the exhibition. Appropriating the stereotypes of a colonial Near East, Benjamin-Constant alternated indolent odalisques and fierce Moors in his large-scale paintings.

The exhibition reveals six iconic aspects of Orientalism, offering a dual reading of its fictional subjects, juxtaposing staged pictorial settings with documented realities. Drawings and photographs round out this exploration of Moorish Spain and sharifian Morocco, between seductive mirages and the hidden realities of a colonial republic.

The Greeks – Agamemnon to Alexander the Great

December 12, 2014 to April 26, 2015 – Museum Pointe-À-Callière

Agamemnon to Alexander the Great is the most vast and comprehensive exhibition on Ancient Greece ever presented in North America. It brings together more than 500 artefacts from 21 Greek museums, including many pieces never before displayed outside Greece. Among other treasures, visitors will be able to see a number of priceless objects, the result of some unparalleled archaeological discoveries.

To facilitate the production of an exhibition of this breadth, a consortium of North American museums was created. In addition to Pointe-à-Callière, the consortium includes Canadian Museum of History, The Field Museum in Chicago and the National Geographic Museum in Washington, DC. The Canadian Museum of History will oversee direction of the consortium, as well as work on production of the exhibition in association with the Directorate General of Antiquities and Cultural Heritage of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports.

I Musici of Montreal

April 09, 2015

The Orchestre de chambre I Musici de Montréal is a non-profit organization constituted under Part III of the Québec Companies Act. Founded in 1983 by cellist and conductor Yuli Turovsky, who served as its conductor until May 2011, the orchestra is made up of 15 musicians whose vast repertoire ranges from baroque music to contemporary music. Its chief mission is to promote and contribute to the knowledge, development, composition and execution of music, particularly chamber music.

Concerts at The Museum of Fine Arts

April 14,15, 16, 17, 18, 24, 26 & 29, 2015

Bourgie Concert Hall, at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) complex, is a 444-seat venue located in the restored Erskine and American Church (designed in 1894 in Neo-Romanesque style by architect Alexander Cowper Hutchison). Designated a national historic site in 1998, the transformed setting is now graced with high-quality acoustics and an exceptional décor incorporating 20 historic Tiffany stained glass windows. Ideal for performances by chamber-music ensembles, string orchestras, and other groups, Bourgie Concert Hall offer music lovers an auditory repertoire as diverse as the MMFA collections.

Le Carré des Lombes - Danse Danse (Contemporary Dance - Québec)

April 30, 2015 & May 01, 02, 2015 – Place des Arts/Théâtre Maisonneuve

In inviting her to stage, for the first time, a creation at Théâtre Maisonneuve, Danse Danse is offering Danièle Desnoyers a venue that is a match for her talent. In this new piece, the effusive and sensitive choreographer refines the dialogue between movement and sound that she has been developing for the past 30 years, by provoking here a collision between the soundscape of the harp and the contemporary sounds of electro-acoustic music of Nicolas Bernier. Torn between utopia and reality and subject to the temptations of beauty, ten dancers storm the space, giving form to her finely polished gestural language in vigorous duos and explosions of energy. A work imbued with humour and sensuality.

The Envelope

March 24 to April 19, 2015 – Centaur Theatre

While excited actors gather in a local Italian restaurant, two producers jockey for the film rights to a new play premiering at an Old Montreal theatre. Torn between an indie L.A. filmmaker and a local producer who dangles a tempting multi-million dollar envelope from the Federal Film Fund, the playwright confronts ambition over loyalty and money over art. Made in Canada movie projects generate more red tape than red carpet winners in this satiric and engaging new play about the celluloid dream factory.

Triplex Nervosa

April 21 to May 17, 2015 – Centaur Theatre

A young woman has maxed out her credit cards and put a promising music career on hold to buy a triplex in Montreal’s trendy Mile End, only to find that the charming but stubborn Hassidic previous owner and her motley crew of tenants won’t co-operate with her needs. When she and her handy-man conspire to make one particularly difficult tenant’s life less comfortable, things go terribly wrong. A comedy about art, property and the trials and tribulations of nouveau-hipster neighbourhoods. And there’s music!

A Simple Place

April 15 to 18, 2015 - La Tohu

These acrobats with infectious energy quite simply scoff at gravity. Seriously spectacular!

After winning ”Best Circus” at the 2013 Adelaide Fringe Festival, the young Australian troupe Gravity & Other Myths captured the hearts of critics and audiences in Montréal with their sold out show A Simple Space at MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE in 2014. Their resounding success is due to their absolutely incomparable gravity defying talent. The eight acrobats draw spectators in with their technical gifts combined with mad frenzy, and a light-hearted mix of brute strength, boldness and creative prowess. Every single detail in their production is about fun and challenge. Flung around, piled up, walking upside down, becoming a human skipping rope, or involving their audience, these Australians put on a daring show that pushes them to their acrobatic limits. It’s bold and shamelessly talented, tongue-in-cheek, a tad extreme and utterly enthralling!

Maple Syrup Season - Sugaring Off

Entire month of March & part of April 2015

Sugaring off is a cultural rite-of-passage in Montreal. A short-lived season that varies every year, somewhere from late February to early May, perhaps the best known activity is eating hot maple taffy off fresh snow. Hot-taffy-on-snow stands start appearing in town around early March near Mont-Royal Metro, the Jean-Talon Market and other select locations around the city. While they soothe urgent maple cravings, they also bring up the nostalgia for an authentic sugar shack or cabane à sucre experience.
