The OM is buzzing: Génial!

February 26 – March 7, 2021

Grab your magnifying glass and take a closer look at the musical world of insects, spiders and worms. Families will be thrilled to see Martin Carli, from the Télé-Québec hit Génial!, back on stage to bring us up close and personal with the little critters. Put on your dancing shoes for Roussel’s Spider’s Feast and take cover when it comes time for Rimsky-Korsakov’s famed Flight of the Bumblebee. Round it out with moonlight stroll to Vivaldi’s lively “La Notte.”
