At Théâtre Desjardins, we’re ambitious. And we’re proud of it. We’re always striving for excellence, bringing you unique, memorable and entertaining experiences night after night. If we’re so ambitious, it’s because we nourish ourselves with your warm applause, your smiles as you enter and leave our theatres, your enthusiasm for discovering up-and-coming artists, and your ever-growing attendance at our events. And with good reason: last season set three records: attendance, sales and distribution! Théâtre Desjardins has never been so active! What a source of pride for our team.
AN OUTSTANDING OFFER
To be ambitious, you need a vision. Our vision is clear: carefully select the best shows in all disciplines. And this year, there are over 200 performances to tempt you. Let yourself be charmed by Quebec legends – Diane Dufresne, Michel Rivard, Lise Dion, among others – or by new propositions – Thomas Levac, LUMIÈRE, Elinor Frey. Travel with our international artists: Layla and Jihad Darwiche, Michèle Nguyen, Bruno Coppens. Discover the arts for young people, with more than eight shows for the whole family! Okay, I’ll stop now… you understand that our offer is rich and varied! But that’s not all. In addition to the shows, we offer a wide range of activities before and after the shows.
Our post-show dialogues will be multiplied, and stay tuned for the initiatives we’ll be launching over the course of the season.
STUDIO 1111: 100% FEMININE
This season, I wanted to put women in the spotlight at our studio. Twenty 100% women’s shows in all disciplines will be presented in this place of discovery and proximity. I invite you to discover and applaud them without restraint! At the end, the fact that you are so warmly welcomed every evening is thanks to an entire team, dedicated and passionate. Receptionists, bar staff, box-office staff, venue managers and technicians all keep a tireless eye on things. Thank you for everything. Above all, thank you for your loyalty.
