Montreal HIGH LIGHTS Festival 

Thursday, February 13, to Sunday, March 2, 2003

Montreal hosts the fourth annual edition of its acclaimed HIGH LIGHTS Festival from Thursday, February 13, to Sunday, March 2, 2003, featuring 18 evenings of gourmet, sound, and visual pleasures.

The Montreal HIGH LIGHTS Festival offers three different themes that highlight the very best that Montreal has to offer: the Hydro-Québec Celebration of Light, the SAQ Dining Experience and the prestigious cultural program, the Sun Life Financial Performing Arts.

The Hydro-Québec Celebration of Light features free outdoor events at the festival site, in the heart of downtown Montreal, including spectacular fire and light shows, busker performances, and many other exciting events for the entire family.

Twenty-four productions from seven countries make up the Sun Financial Performing Arts series, which focuses on the dramatic arts. Robert Wilson, renowned theatre director, and Édouard Lock, choreographer and founder of the critically acclaimed dance company La La La Human Steps, are the honorary chairs of the series. On February 13, the series opens with Amélia, a new creation by Édouard Lock, at Théâtre Maisonneuve of Place des Arts.

Other highlights in the performing arts series are the music of Les Misérables performed by The Montreal Symphony Orchestra and featuring Gino Quilico; Nomade, the 10th anniversary production by Cirque Éloize; Rigoletto, performed by L'Opéra de Montréal; and Carmen Tango by Le Grand Choeur de Montréal.

Musical highlights include a performance by the entire Marsalis family and a performance by Ibrahim Ferrer, a legendary member of the Buena Vista Social Club.

The performing arts series concludes on March 2 with a star-studded concept performance centred on the theme of theatre and featuring great moments of Quebec theatre performed through song and drama.

The SAQ Dining Experience includes 50 of Montreal's finest tables offering Special Festival Menus as well as 18 evenings of chic cocktail hours, theme brunches, gastronomic evenings, culinary workshops and many other exciting events presented by some of the world's renowned chefs.

The region of Catalonia is being honored in all three of the Festival series with a tribute to Catalan author Manuel Vázquez Montalbán and culinary delights from a number of master chefs from the region.
