Upcoming Events

Shakespeare In The Park - “Twelfth Night (or What You Will)” 2015-07-15 19:00 - 2015-07-15 22:00


Please join us as Repercussion Theatre presents yet another magical production of open air theatre on the great lawn at the main entrance of the Mount Royal Cemetery at 1297 Chemin de la Forêt, Outremont

Shakespeare’s most perfect comedy, provoking tears and laughter in equal measure and sometimes simultaneously. Twelfth Night is a story of love and loss, asking intriguing questions about identity and at the heart of it all is a touching story of separated twins desperate to find their other half.

The Mount Royal Cemetery is one of the oldest rural garden cemeteries in North America and has been an integral part of the Montreal Community since its founding in 1852. The serene landscapes and remnants from the past make it a peaceful place of beauty and reality for visitors, and the abundant flowering shrubs and fruit trees provide a safe haven for small wildlife.

Autumn is ablaze with color, from the palest yellow to the most intense red.  Days are shorter and the cemetery trees are completing their yearly cycle and preparing for the coming winter.  Spring flowers, once pollinated, have developed into fruit over the summer in a multitude of forms which we can observe in autumn – berries, drupes, nuts, pods, capsules, samaras, arils, achenes - nurturing the seeds within them, with the promise of renewed life in the spring.
