Opening ceremony

Montréal, BEL

Tens of thousands of people invaded the downtown area of Montreal for the inauguration of the Place du Quartier of shows.

The Montrealians had thus assembled to attend the ‘Grand Baiser’, a show produced under the joint artistic direction of Danielle Roy and Luc Petit.

Poetry was to the fore on this lovely summer night with a lunar Pierrot sitting on a piano literally propelled 20 feet into the air by the water jets of the fountains, and a loving couple dancing gracefully in the Montreal sky against the silhouette of the buildings of this fully revived District.

With the exceptional participation of Diane Dufresne and Dj Champion.
