After a successful pilot project, the Monument-National shows its true colours for the first time. The theatre façade now reveals its identity with a landmark work of illumination that is environmentally friendly and energy-efficient. The result of a collaboration between the Quartier des spectacles Partnership and the Monument-National, this element of the Quartier des spectacles Lighting Plan will highlight the significance of a key cultural institution by integrating it into the nightscape of 21st century Montreal.
