Rick Michel Headlines at the Rialto Theatre


Sinatra aficionados in Montreal are in for a treat. Rick Michel will be performing at the Rialto Theatre at 8 p.m. on Saturday night, June 1st. Rick's masterful interpretations of Ol' Blue Eyes will make you feel like you've been teleported back into the swingin' Sixties.


Rick has appeared on stages across the globe, translating the tones, body language, and look of Sinatra into the modern era. New generations of Sinatra fans mingle with old-timers to share the joy of favorites like "Come Fly with Me," and "New York, New York." This 90-minute performance is an ode to Sinatra's 60-year career, with big band musicians providing the atmosphere to each of his songs. Rick has been a fan of the famed performer for decades, singing Sinatra's songs since he was a teenager. He hopes to instill this passion for Sinatra in new fans and listeners who are revisiting the legend.


Visitors passing through Quebec should stop by the Rialto and see the former movie palace on Saturday night. The building is a designated Historic Site of Canada, with Neo-baroque architecture appealing to curious travelers. The interior of the Rialto Theatre includes beautiful golden filigree etched across the arched framework of the stage, with stained-glass lights casting a romantic glow over audiences. It is the perfect environment to take a significant other out for a unique evening, or for friends who enjoy Sinatra to connect over the classics.


The Ristorante Il Rialto provides a delightful array of gourmet cuisine, including antipasti, soups, and salads. Dishes like ricotta gnocchi and tagliatelle al ragu will quell your hunger, as you enjoy Sinatra Forever over dinner and a few drinks.
