The Barber of Seville

In his ruthless attempts to seduce the beautiful Rosina (mezzo-soprano Isabel Léonard), who is the ward of a cantankerous old guardian hoping to marry her, Count Almaviva (tenor Lawrence Brownlee) enlists his former valet, the barber Figaro (baritone Christopher Maltman).

Unexpected twists of fate, hilariously complicated situations, and irresistibly charming music have made The Barber of Seville the greatest masterpiece of the Italian opera buffa style. Succumb again to the charms of this sparkling 2014 Metropolitan Opera production!

Classical Spree

The OSM’s Classical Spree is a major celebration of classical music presented by the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal in partnership with Place des Arts. In August of each summer, internationally established masters team up with next-generation artists to interpret the works of composers from yesterday and today.

The festival’s formula aims to be family-friendly and accessible: some thirty concerts and shows, each lasting 45 minutes, are presented at reasonable prices in various halls at Place des Arts, including the Maison symphonique. Plenty of free events are also offered in the public spaces of Place des Arts. Classical Spree was first held in 2012, and more than 200 musicians take part in the event every year.
