Skywatch Friday

This week's Skywatch feature is another photo of Montreal's Quartier des Spectacles under a beautiful blue sky. To the right you can see a building that looks like a big staircase. It is the Salle Pierre Mercure where the Grands Ballets Canadiens perform, except for when they are performing their annual run of The Nutcracker when they occupy the Place des Arts for a month. The building to the left with the large bay of window is the Place des Arts, where the Opéra de Montréal performs and in between those two concert halls you can just make out the new Maison Symphonique, where the Montreal Symphony Orchestra now performs. The interior is complete, but the outside is still missing some final touches.

  1. What a fabulous blue sky, Karine, above the neighborhood where everything happens in Montreal. Wonderful!
