EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

The OSM gives students the opportunity to become familiar with the world of classical music by attending innovative and stimulating educational concerts presented at the Maison symphonique de Montreal. Through teaching guides, online resources and educational activities, students discover the instruments, composers and great works of the symphonic repertoire.

DON QUIXOTE’S SPANISH ADVENTURE

DURATION: 60 min
HALL: Maison symphonique de Montréal
REGULAR PRICE:  12$/person*
*taxes and service fees included

PRESENTATION OF THE CONCERT

A troupe of entertainers shows up at Maison symphonique to tell a story in which dream and reality intertwine, where glory is a reward and love, an absolute. Inspired by the story of Don Quixote, our artists dive into the tale of the knight and his faithful squire, Sancho. Along the way, they fight giants, scoundrels and other Machiavellian forces. Will overcoming both real and imagined obstacles turn our hero into a true knight?
Come along with him to the sounds of Albéniz, Bizet, Debussy, de Falla, Ravel and Revueltas, among others.
