Inspiring, dazzling, mind-blowingly beautiful: AURA is a multimedia spectacular at the Notre-Dame Basilica that promises nothing less than a once-in-a-lifetime experience set in hallowed and historic surroundings.
AURA is a technical and sensory delight brilliantly designed and executed by none other than Montréal’s own Moment Factory, an award-winning multimedia studio renowned the world over for its stunning creations.
Comprised of a thematic route followed by a multimedia experience, this unique two-part show runs approximately 45 minutes in length and combines hi-tech lighting and symphonic sound to create an immersive world of wonder.
To begin, wind your way through the Basilica along pathway of lights, discovering exquisitely illuminated artwork along the way. This progressive immersion into AURA's sonically and visually captivating universe compels you to venture to the heart of the Basilica in anticipation of what is to come.
Next, the ethereal beauty of Notre-Dame Basilica is put on full display as a light show builds to reveal a carousel of luminescent scenes set to orchestral music. From the choir to the vaults and the organ, every part of the cathedral’s sublime architecture and heritage shines during this 20-minute monumental spectacle.
