Marie-Claude Harvey's “Opening Night” is a touching tribute to George Farhood and his son Charles, Lebanese immigrants to Canada who founded Montreal's Chanteclerc Theatre in 1912. Searching for a better life, George and Charles arrived in Quebec in 1895. They began working as peddlers. With money saved over many years, the Farhoods founded a theatre that became more than just a means of making a living. It became the family business, but also their passion, and realization of their dreams. In recounting memories tied to the family theatre, descendants of George and Charles Farhood recall, in a very personal way, how the dreams of immigrants contributed to the rich cultural fabric of Quebec and Canada. In French: La Première
