Pierre's Picks: 5 don't miss events in Montreal this weekend
Art Souterrain, a children's film festival, Lakeshore Light Opera, Disney on Ice and The Clock in Montreal
Every Friday, CBC Montreal’s Homerun arts reporter Pierre Landry brings you the top five things to see and do in Montreal over the weekend.
Here are Pierre's picks for March 7, 8 and 9.
1. Contemporary art goes underground during the Art Souterrain festival. Nearly 100 works are displayed in the subterranean pathways linking many downtown buildings. This year's main focus is on First Nations contemporary art. It runs until March 16.
2. The 17th edition of the Festival International du Film pour Enfants de Montréal presents films for young audiences from around the world. While most films are in presented French, a handful of them are in English. The films are being shown at Cinéma Beaubien, Cinéma du Parc, and Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, until Sunday.
3. Lakeshore Light Opera is going all-out to present Gilbert and Sullivan's The Yeomen of the Guard. This production features 38 actors (aged 17 to 70), an 18-piece orchestra, and custom-made period costumes. Head to the Louise Chalmers Theatre (501 St-Jean Blvd.) in Pointe-Claire on March 7, 8, 14 and 15 at 8 p.m., or March 9 and 15 at 2 p.m.
4. Disney on Ice returns to Montreal with Mickey and the gang. Many princesses and villains are featured, as are characters from Toy Story, Lilo & Stitch and Alice in Wonderland. The show's at the Bell Centre, presented in French on Friday, Saturday & Sunday, and in English on Sunday at 3 p.m.
