09 November, 2005

On February 24, 25 and 26, 2006, Quebec City will be spellbound by Vue sur Bond 007, an unprecedented event that will feature Sir Roger Moore and a host of celebrities and artists who were involved in the filmography of the famous British secret agent.

The project was designed and produced to spotlight the contribution of Harry Saltzman, one of the most important producers of this series who also happens to have Quebec roots.

The project also aims to raise funds for the 7th edition of the 3 Americas Film Festival and UNICEF through cultural and sports activities. The guest celebrities will take part in these activities.

In addition to Sir Roger Moore, Quebec City will welcome director Guy Hamilton (Goldfinger, Diamonds are Forever, Live and Let Die, The Man With the Golden Gun), actress and Bond girl Britt Ekland (The Man with the Golden Gun) and actor Richard Kiel aka Jaws (The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker).

Honouring the event with her presence is Dame Shirley Bassey, the internationally renowned singer of the theme songs in Diamonds are Forever, Goldfinger and Moonraker. She will perform in "Vue sur Bond 007", Le Spectacle, an exceptional concert that will showcase the legendary music from the James Bond films. Under the artistic direction of Steve Barakatt and assisted by Pierre Gagnon, the event will take place on February 25 at 8pm at Grand The‰tre de Quebec. It will also feature conductor, composer and arranger Nic Raine - a long-time collaborator of John Barry, notably on two Bond films - who will conduct the Orchestre symphonique de Quebec for this occasion.

A tribute to such artists as Harry Saltzman, the screening of film clips and speeches from guest celebrities are also on the program for this memorable evening. Regular tickets ($60 and $90 + taxes and service charges) will go on sale on November 10 through Reseau Billetech. It is worth noting that the tickets for the first 8 rows - that also give access to a meet-and-greet charity cocktail party with the celebrities before the show - will cost $435 plus taxes and must be purchased through the office of the 3 Americas Film Festival.
