WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT SVENGALI

Svengali is beautiful, challenging and a visual turn-on. The ballet is, simply, a triumph, danced with explosive discipline by this talented company.”
- Robert Enright, CBC

“It’s the subtleties that make this work so interesting - unexpected darts, flops and twists that punctuate more classical technique.”
- Jenna French, Saskatoon StarPhoenix, November 2011
