Television: Prokoviev: The Unfinished Diary - In 1918, composer Sergei Prokofiev left Russia for the West, spending four years in America and then in Paris before being convinced to return to the new Soviet Union in 1936. During this period Prokofiev kept a detailed yet cryptic diary (he omitted vowels). Yosif Feyginberg’s documentary Prokofiev: The Unfinished Diary brings to life the composer’s daily struggles through his own words. The documentary was shown at the 27th FIFA in March and makes its Canadian TV debut on Bravo! (Oct. 14, 10 PM; Oct. 16, 7 PM). —Wah Keung Chan

Joining her are flutist Marie-Ève Lauzon and gambist Élin Söderström. 514-872-5338 www.smcq.qc.ca —Hannah Rahimi

Theatre: A slice of 1940s Canadiana awaits you at the Oscar Peterson Concert Hall from October 16-18. Daniel Langlois's Till We Meet Again is a WWII-era musical examining the impact of a CBC radio show on those on the homefront. Set in a time when radio was still the community event, this Panache Theatre production captures the struggles, foibles, and joys of a nation huddled around the family set, hanging on each word broadcast on the airwaves in the hopes of catching some good news. Labelled "one of the 10 Best Productions of 2005" when it first opened, the play's October dates will be followed by a tour ending again in Montreal from November 21 to 22. —Crystal Chan

Danse : Reprise du superbe Çaturn de Naomi Stikeman à l’Usine C du 13 au 17. —Aline Apostolska

Théâtre : Un Tramway nommé Désir - Il y a d’abord la pièce de Tennessee Williams, l’une des plus puissantes du théâtre américain. Puis la rencontre entre un grand rôle féminin, la sensuelle et fragile Blanche Dubois, et une actrice formidable, Sylvie Drapeau. Ajoutez que ce spectacle marque les retrouvailles de la comédienne avec le brillant metteur en scène de Marie Stuart, Alexandre Marine, et vous comprendrez pourquoi il constitue probablement l’un des rendez-vous incontournables de l’automne. Jusqu’au 31 octobre, au Théâtre du Rideau Vert. —Marie Labrecque
