RWB Book Club

The Royal Winnipeg Ballet is proud to launch our very-first book club for our 79th season, a season featuring fascinating female lead roles.

All are welcome to join us as we venture alongside our upcoming season’s four protagonists: The Handmaid Tale’s Offred, Clara from Nutcracker, Juliet from Romeo & Juliet, and The Wizard of Oz’s Dorothy.​

Members of the book club are encouraged to participate in discussions on our RWB Book Club Facebook group and are invited to attend our in-person book club meeting that takes place after every Friday’s performance.​

We will be exploring the following stories: Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, Gregory Maguire’s Hiddensee (a retelling of Nutcracker), Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, and L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Feel free to join for as many as you like!​
