This exhibition has ended.

The McCord Museum celebrated the 50th anniversary season of Montreal's Théâtre du Nouveau Monde (TNM) with a collaborative exhibition that delighted history and theatre buffs alike. Featuring an innovative exhibition design by well-known set-designer Danièle Lévesque, Molière in the New World delved into the world of the theatre, and highlighted the importance of this 17th-century playwright's works throughout the TNM's half-century of history. Visitors to the exhibition discovered classic characters such as Tartuffe and l'Avare, and met some of Quebec's best loved classical actors. This behind-the-scenes glimpse of the sets, costumes, props and characters of the theatre enchanted visitors of all ages.
