From rollicking musicals to thought-provoking drama, The Segal Centre for the Performing Arts offers up a rich variety of cross-cultural artistic experiences.
Home to the award-winning Segal Theatre, the Academy of Performing Arts, CinemaSpace, Studio and the world-renowned Dora Wasserman Yiddish Theatre, the Segal brings the world’s best to Montréal stage while serving as a vital artistic hub for the local performing arts community.
Heralded as “a major player on the city’s art scene” and “one of the country’s elite cultural institutions”, the Segal aims to support emerging artists and foster intercultural understanding through the arts with an exciting lineup of entertaining and transformative productions reflective of today’s society.
Over 65,000 visitors each year enjoy an array of original interpretations of popular classic and contemporary works, new Canadian musicals, concerts, dance, cinema and Jewish cultural events.
Founded in 1967, the centre was a gift to the Jewish community in honour of prominent philanthropist and arts patron, Saidye Bronfman. Located in Montréal’s lively west-end, the building was designed by her daughter, award-winning architect Phyllis Lambert.
