Following sold-out shows in 2013, Robert Lepage’s Needles and Opium returns to Canadian Stage for an exclusive 10-performance run.

The technological wizardry dazzled audiences while the poignant performances resonated deeply. Intertwining the lives of Miles Davis, Jean Cocteau, and a heartbroken artist named Robert, it’s a beautiful, poetic, and transformative experience. This is a masterpiece you won’t want to miss the second time around.
