Producers say the large-scale exhibit will transform more than 400 paintings into larger-than-life images, including well-known masterpieces from the "Water Lilies" series.

Billed as the largest immersive exhibit in the country, the installation will cover more than 4,600 square metres.

Its designers are from the Montreal-based Normal Studio, who are also behind the show "Beyond Van Gogh," which similarly melds moving images and music. Meanwhile, there's another large-scale van Gogh showcase, "Immersive Van Gogh," from a different team.

Tickets to "Beyond Monet" start at $39.99 for adults and $29.99 for children. They're available at monettoronto.com.
