THE NATIONAL BANK NIGHT AT THE OPERA
The 3rd philanthropic activity by the Young Associates of Opéra de Montréal
A sophisticated night in jail | Opera artists and special guests: The Barr Brothers





Montreal – March 1, 2013 – Following in the footsteps of its first two successful activities, the Young Associates of Opéra de Montréal are back, this time with a new take on the traditional benefit event format. The event has been transformed into an experience—a Night at the Opera!

The Night
The place: the event will take place on the Opéra de Montréal stage, amid the sets of the opera Dead Man Walking, on Friday, March 15, 2013, beginning at 7:30 pm. The theme: the night at the opera will immerse participants in a striking prison setting, but one that offers a most sophisticated and extravagant experience. The artistic program: the artists of the Atelier lyrique de l’Opéra de Montréal will offer guests—from the novice to the more experience listener—a selection of well-known, dramatic arias from the opera repertory. This will be complemented by other eclectic musical performances. DJ Yves Laurin will provide music throughout the evening to get guests dancing, and there will be a special appearance by Montreal folk group The Barr Brothers! A unique experience, a not-to-be-missed event!

The goal of the event is to raise funds to support the Opéra de Montréal, and to give young professionals from the Montreal region an opportunity to get introduced to the world of opera or to rediscover the art form in a completely different kind of setting. This year, there is an important new partner lending its support to the Young Associates of Opéra de Montréal and the Atelier lyrique de l’Opéra de Montréal: National Bank, which will act as the title sponsor of The Night at the Opera, and will support all of the Young Associates’ and Atelier lyrique’s activities.

The National Bank Night at the Opera is made possible through the support of its generous sponsors: National Bank, Little Burgundy, Groupe Alfid, Molson M and ION Magazine.

The artists’ entrance to Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier at Place des Arts is located at 260 de Maisonneuve Boulevard West (Place des Arts Metro); on-site parking available.


The Young Associates of Opéra de Montréal Committee is made up of 13 individuals from various spheres, such as finance, law, medicine, and entrepreneurship. Committee members have distinguished themselves in their respective areas of activity and are involved in their community. The Young Associates of Opéra de Montréal Committee seeks to promote an appreciation of opera among young professionals by offering them a unique and special cultural experience. Through its activities, the committee works towards raising the awareness and loyalty of a new opera audience, while contributing to the Opéra de Montréal’s long-term support and success.
