N The Queen of Paris: Broadway-bound

N the Queen of Paris.png
The next hit musical on Broadway may be on its way - and it's from Quebec!

It's called N The Queen of Paris and a creative team from Montreal wrote the book, music and lyrics.
Over the next three nights, you can even see an advance performance.

The musical is set in late 19th-century Paris and it tells the story of a young single mother and aspiring actress who rises to stardom.

Ella Louise Allaire and Martin Lord Ferguson are the creators and co-directors of  N The Queen of Paris. They're also the co-founders of the Montreal entertainment production company Monlove.

They join All in a Weekend host Sonali Karnick in studio this morning.

All aboard the OperaBus

If you love the opera but can't afford it,  or if you don't know anything about arias, librettos and concertos but you are curious, tonight could be your lucky night.

The Opéra de Montréal is offering a free night at the premiere of Nabucco - and free transportation too, on the OperaBus!
Here to tell us more about it is the director of communications, outreach and education with the Opéra de Montréal (and a sort of conductor of the OperaBus), Pierre Vachon.

For her new project, she decided to channel an alter-ego - Willows.

She spoke with Pierre Landry about how that process helped her share more of her personal story.
