- Beautiful theatre, feels spacious and comfortable whilst still retaining some intimacy. The acoustics were good and seats a nice size and not cramped. Would love to come back.Written September 18, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- We attended a concert at the Theatre Capitole and it was a true highlight of our trip, both because of the beautiful venue as well as the outstanding performance of Dominique Hudson (and his ensemble). The Capitole is truly worth seeing on its own, and as a music lover (particularly latin) I would search out a concert by Dominque again. Engaging, with incredible musicianship and energy. Also one of the most professionally mixed sound quality of a concert in many years. What a great night!Written October 1, 2017This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- This year I surprised my wife with tickets to the Depeche Mode concert in Quebec City. Although it is a far drive from Philadelphia it is such a great venue and very easy to get to and park. Sure will come up for future events. Very clean and safe experience.Written April 16, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- A nice place to sit, drink and listen to music whilst watching the rest of the world go by. Very nice for 30mins or so to rest the tired feet!Written September 26, 2017
- Check and see what's at the Agora during your stay in Quebec City. We saw an AMAZING show by Crepuscule that was free. The acrobatics can't be beat. One SERIOUS word of warning. If you do not like LOUD (I mean VERY VERY loud) techno music that will shake your bones), bring GOOD earplugs and the show will be wonderful. Happily for me, I carry earplugs for just such events and it made the difference between a painfully loud and amazing show.Written September 10, 2017
- There is no point in being harsh about a free experience and the idea of having a sound and light show visible from many places is a great one. However, I side with those who raise their eyebrows over this attraction.
We watched from the upper walls of Old Town - great views, great sound. We arrived really early, thinking the place would fill up, but it didn't so we could have just arrived at the last minute.
About 15 minutes into the program, my husband turned and whispered, "What on earth is this?" Others around us were murmuring similar things; most of us left before it was finished.Written August 8, 2013

- I forgot to submit a review about this place years ago when I went to Quebec City to watch a good friend of mine come from Sweden to compete in a strongman contest at the Colisee Pepsi back in September of 2005. I made a review of the hotels I stayed in but forgot to include this review. It was a simple arena structure where the surroundings were not particularly fancy, but they were functional.
It was a two day weekend event, and the first day went well and the events were very entertaining and my friend did very well in the contest. They even had a half time show with some very acrobatic and skillful display of motocross bikes in a show until itself worthy of charging admission.
There structure was simple and there was no imposing security and freedom of movement was pretty liberal. In the second day, there were a lot of unfortunate events. I saw one Canadian strongman almost lose his finger putting an atlas stone up on the podium. There was another strongman from Finland who was obviously on steroids, but surprisingly he was a smoker, too, which made me think about his heart when I saw him the day before. During the event, his heart attack landed him in the hospital and for a while, it was touch and go as to whether or not he would even make it. I had pretty good seats, so I could see it easily enough and well enough, but in spite of that, it was not quite as close to the action as I wanted to be. That issue of question was answered due to the half time show of the motocross show. I would say that the building itself was functional enough, but nothing overtly special. I would certainly see another event there apart from the strongman competition. I am going to put in the review that it was in September, because it was in September, but the earliest year back is 2014 and it was not the case though I must select that year. It was 2005. I flew out of Vancouver, BC, to Montreal, Quebec, and due to no direct flights, I had to take a 3.5 hour bus ride from Montreal to Quebec City to meet up with my friend and watch him compete and support him. It was a lot of fun all around, a great experience for me in a new place I had never been before. In Montreal, I spoke French but it was okay to use English, but when I was in Quebec City, I found that I pretty much had to use my French. I enjoyed that, though, because I seldom get the chance to use it here in Vancouver.Written February 19, 2015
- D'Orsay has terrific food! It was worth the wait outside and the substantial wait at the table for a Sunday lunch! We shared the paella for two, which was loaded with lots of fresh seafood!Written January 5, 2022
