Excellent performance with a very good introduction on Verdi and Rigoletto. Amazing tenor Rene Barbera as the Duke and soprano Myriam Leblanc as Gilda.

We had a great time going to the opening night of La Boheme. It's a lovely opera house, and the tickets were reasonable, especially coming from London. The performance was very good, the programmes were free, and generally I recommend visiting.

This moderns style opera building lies in the cultural district of Montreal. Although it is large, acoustics are excellent and the comfort of the seats is beyond compare. Opera performed there are rather classical as far as I can tell.
