Cultural activities: what to do this weekend

Here are some suggestions for cultural activities to do this weekend.

The Crown

After two years of waiting, the 5e season of Netflix’s huge series, The Crown, is finally online. This time we dive into the heart of the intimate dramas of the royal family that occurred between 1991 and 1997, such as the scandal of the tampongatethe separation of Charles and Diana and the famous interview of the princess with the BBC in 1995. However, it will be necessary to wait for the sixth season for the drama which occurred under the Alma bridge in August 1997.

► Where: On Netflix

Mahler’s “Resurrection”

The Orchester symphonique de Montréal is webcasting the opening concert of its 2022-2023 season. The conductor Rafael Payare and the musicians propose, as a starter, the creation of the work Time, by contemporary Austrian composer Thomas Larcher. The piece de resistance of this concert is the Symphony noh 2, by Gustav Mahler, with the presence of German soprano Dorothea Röschmann, British mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill and the OSM Chorus. A monumental 80-minute work that addresses life, death and resurrection.

► Where: On until November 22.

Eschatology (the collapse)

All the passion, the intelligence, the humor, the ability to celebrate the depth of the little moments of life and the yellow laughter that we find in the television and cinematographic works of Guillaume Lambert are present in this (too) short novel. It’s hard not to imagine the actor playing his own role in this skilfully written story that slowly brings us back to different stages of the recent pandemic. All through the daily life full of little adventures (social networks, plane trips, one-night stands, moments of loneliness) of an observant man who tries both to understand himself and his time. .
