NAC Indigenous Theatre’s Indigenous Art Market is back for its first in-person event since December 2019.
This Thursday is the official Canadian premiere of “Sleeping Beauty”, presented at the NAC by the renowned classical ballet company Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal, featuring the NAC Orchestra.

Recently, Bruce Burwell has been recommending Urban Retail Walks (URW) to deal with your pandemic-panic cabin fever. A few weeks ago, he recommended a Glebe and Bank St. south walk. This week, we’re going to head north on Bank from the Glebe, cross over Sparks to Elgin and then come back south.

Leslie Feist (also known as just “Feist”) invites all music lovers to come and see her performance of her latest material, MULTITUDES, at the National Arts Centre. This communal production was organized to bring people together through music, and Feist invites the audience to either sit back or sing along.
While given the current circumstances in regards to COVID-19, this weekend still brings entertainment.
November’s second summer is coming to an end and this weekend we will have returned to more seasonal temperatures. While we may have to put on our jackets and scarves before heading outside, there is plenty to enjoy if we do (as well as plenty to do if we don’t)!

Were it any other time but now, we’d all be rejoicing about the arrival of the Easter long weekend and an extra couple of days off of work but, for a lot of us, this past month has been the longest weekend ever.

Happy holidays, folks! Around this time of year, no one is sure what day of the week it is and as such we have decided to write an extended Yuletide Roundup for you all. We’ve got the low-down on what is up this weekend, right through to New Year’s Eve.
Whether you are still searching for the perfect gift, hosting a Friendsmass dinner, or hoping to just have a good non-denominational time on the town we hope you stay warm, stay safe, and have yourselves a merry little weekend!
Holiday shopping really gets going this weekend across the 613, but there are also great theatre and music options if you’re looking to keep it cultural.
Stars will be performing at the NAC with a 90-piece orchestra, a first for the band.
