Once upon a time…
Let the Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s 2017-18 season transport you to another world as we explore the art of storytelling.
Our story begins in the world of goblins and courageous young heroes with Twyla Tharp’s The Princess and the Goblin. This epic quest received rave reviews upon it’s world premiere in 2012 and continues to resonate with lovers of fantasy all across North America.
The holidays are once again a time for traditional tales of adventure and enchantment when Nutcracker returns to our stage. This timeless family favourite promises to once again enchant audiences of all ages. We are thrilled to present Ballet Jörgen Canada’s Anastasia in February. Their largest and grandest full-length spectacle to date promises to add a dash of mystery to our 78th season.
As no story is complete without a touch of romance, the classical gem The Sleeping Beauty awakens our senses in March; and in May, drama abounds with the renowned Carmina Burana and Serenade.
To round out the season, we are featuring the RWB Aspirants and the dancers of the RWB School Professional Division, all of whom play an integral part in the RWB’s story. On The Edge and Spotlight are diverse showcases that celebrate the amazing talent of our young artists and provide a rare glimpse into their world.
