The world knows the Cirque du Soleil for its spectacular innovation, mind-blowing talent and euphoric energy. It’s no coincidence the Cirque is based in Montréal, a city oozing with primordial creativity that is nurtured, nourished, cultivated and given wings.
This same pool of talent has engendered an arts scene so vast that we’re confident we have what even your most discriminating client is looking for. We have original dance companies that plumb the depths of human emotions. Music that courts soul and mind, such as electronic, alternative and the highly active indie scene. French – and English – film and theatre. Art galleries that showcase the works of Montréal’s countless artists, plus those of artists from around the world.
It’s not as though we’re new at this: the arts have been important to Montréal throughout its history. That’s why today we have world-renowned museums, orchestras and dance and opera companies. All this energy and creativity has also burst forth into countless festivals for just about any art, sport or interest, and all year long.
We have so much going on that we’re even building a new Quartier des Spectacles downtown, where most of the action takes place, to accommodate even more revellers in even better style. In the centre of it all is La Vitrine Culturelle, Montréal’s cultural window that showcases events and provides information, tickets and promotions on cultural events going on in and around the city.
