Tales to Break Your Heart

February 16, 2024


Can you die of a broken heart? Several tales from past centuries lead us to believe that the answer is yes. For Valentine's Day, colourful characters will entertain you with these love stories.

Go back in time to the 20th century with Philomène and Télesphore. Between two stories, they will share about men and women's realities at the time, from their love life to work at the Arsenal. 

Naughy songs will also liven up the evening.

Don't miss this one-of-a-kind activity in Quebec City that combines history, legends, and music. 


Jean-Philippe Marcotte: A tourism graduate from Collège Laflèche, Jean-Philippe has more than 25 years of experience in interpretation and vulgarization. He has traveled the length and breadth of Quebec, at events and historic sites, interpreting history for all kinds of audiences. For the past 15 years, he has also been a professor in the tourism department at Collège Laflèche.

Francis Désilets: When it came time to choose a field of study, between music and history, the latter won out. This was followed by a BAC in history and the start of a career as a historian, including at the Village québécois d'antan in Drummondville. From there, chance encounters put music back on his path and led him to discover storytelling. Nearly 15 years later, he is said to know almost 300 songs... Truth or legend?
