GRANDS BALLETS PERFORMANCES: ACCESS FOR CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF TWO


Download the Press Release [PDF 238 Ko ]

Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal wishes to state the decisions made in relation to the complaint made by Mr. Lareau and Mrs. Paquette regarding the ticket fee applied to their three-month-old baby for a performance of The Nutcracker at Place des Arts.

Although Les Grands Ballets does not advise parents taking very young children (under the age of 2) to its shows, it is understandable that, in some cases, their presence could be possible. For security reasons, tickets must be issued to all persons in the hall. The tickets must be purchased for children over the age of two (2). Children under the age of 2 are admitted to the shows free of charge as long as they remain seated on their parent’s lap at all times. Please note that the length and content of some of Les Grands Ballets’ performances may make them unfit for younger audiences. The darkness and loud noises could frighten some children. If such is the case, it will be mentioned on the company’s various communication mediums.

Les Grands Ballets is deeply sorry about this incident and wishes to show all of its empathy regarding Mr. Lareau and Mrs Paquette’s complaint. The baby’s ticket will be refunded in its entirety.

Les Grands Ballets would like to insure its clientele that everything has been done in order for its policy to be communicated to all of the Place des Arts’ staff.
