Grand Theatre de Quebec, Livre, Couverture, HistoireThis rich history is told in the pages of Le Grand Théâtre de Québec ─ L’histoire vivante d’une scène d’exception. Launching on June 15, the books tells the the story of this landmark’s creation and impact, as well as its astounding preservation with a chapter by Eric Pelletier.
