Canada’s oldest theatre, Ludger-Duvernay, with its vintage woodwork, red velvet seats, and rich details, casts a spell. Intricate hand-painted designs on the original ceiling and wrought iron railing tracing the balcony’s exuberant curve add to the XIX Century atmosphere. Since its inauguration in1893, Ludger-Duvernay has been in the forefront of a tradition that values openness and creativity. For over a century, it has welcomed a steady procession of international stage stars, Quebecois singers and actors, and an array of social and political leaders. Painstakingly restored in 1993, this jewel of a theatre is equipped to meet the most creative needs by today’s performances and its technical team is reknowned for its professionalism, versatility and willingness to meet the needs of artists and producers. This proscenium theatre, seating 804 (347 on the main floor, 158 on the mezzanine and 299 in the balcony), has an orchestra pit and a removable forestage. Its acoustics are ideal for both the human voice and instrumental music. Each spectator has an excellent viewing angle and a relationship between stage / audience that creates a strong sense of intimacy.

Designated camera spaces throughout the theatre facilitate television shoots. In September 2010, the Ludger-Duvernay was designated Best Theatre in Montreal by cultural chroniclers of La Presse.
