Add To Plan

Watch an action-filled performance of the long-running La Fabuleuse, a mesmerizing show that tells the fascinating story of the founding of the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean area.

A shuttle transfers you from the pier to nearby Théâtre Palais Municipal, the largest indoor theater in the province and certainly one of the most beautiful. Here, you will be treated to a riveting performance of La Fabuleuse, a show that has been continuously running for more than 25 years. It is an extravaganza. Each performance involves more than 100 local actors, 1,600 costume changes, and a host of animals. Add pyrotechnics, laser lighting, special weather effects and music, and you won't be able to take your eyes off the stage.

During this spectacle of nonstop action, watch the history of the region unfold. You'll see how the Indians lived before and after encountering the legendary French explorers Jacques Cartier and Samuel de Champlain. You'll see romanticized scenes of the area's main events and everyday life in the rural province, recounting the drama of the colonists and loggers. A devastating fire, joyous wedding, and destructive flood are all part of the action. In fact, there are so many scene changes, actors, and animals coming on and off the stage that each year the performers spend 15,000 hours in rehearsal. All that hard work and dedication shows. After the usual standing ovation and curtain goes down, you will return by shuttle back to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes limited walking and is mostly seated. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the shuttle and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. A light sweater or jacket and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested.
