Alfred’s Adventures

For children aged 4 to 9!
Live a whole new experience at the Museum: come see and hear a story! You will meet Alfred, a friendly teddy bear, that has his life turned upside down when William’s dad decides to do some major housecleaning to make all the toys disappear!  It’s the beginning of an incredible adventure in an atmosphere punctuated by lighting effects and by a continuous narration flowing with instrumental music.

Schedule: 10:15 a.m. (in French); 11 a.m. (in French); 11:45 a.m. (in French); 12:30 p.m.; 1:15 p.m. (in French); 2 p.m. (in French) ; 2:45 p.m. (in French); 3:30 p.m.; 4:15 p.m. (in French).

For everyone!
Over the course of his unlikely adventures, Alfred the teddy bear experiences a whole range of emotions, to say the least! With the children’s help, three musicians from Orchestre de chambre I Musici de Montréal – with violin, viola, and cello in hand – will explore music’s role in Alfred’s Adventures, a story to see and hear.
