Nutcracker
NUTCRACKER
With the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra

DEC 21 - 30, 2017
Centennial Concert Hall

"Royal Winnipeg Ballet's Nutcracker is Picture Perfect." - The Georgia Strait

When midnight strikes, young Clara’s enchanted Christmas gift leads her into a wondrous world… with the valiant Nutcracker at her side, Clara defeats the Mouse King and his army of mice, and journeys to the Land of Snow and the Kingdom of Sweets.

This sparkling holiday tradition is a festive feast for the senses with enchanting costumes, timeless choreography and a brilliant score by Tchaikovsky. Nutcracker features endearing Canadian scenes like a snowy pond hockey game and a battle on Parliament Hill. What could be more fun for the family than to join young Clara’s Christmas fantasy, where toys come to life, the Sugar Plum Fairy spreads her magic, mischievous Filbert the Bear steals the Christmas pudding and where Hazel the Polar Bear and her twelve furry polar cubs will surely warm your heart. A holiday classic for the whole family!

Anastasia
ANASTASIA: Presented by Canada’s Ballet Jörgen

FEB 2, 2018
Pantages Playhouse Theatre

Canada’s Ballet Jörgen brings back the magical tale of the Russian Grand Duchess Anastasia for the 100th anniversary of the story and the 10th anniversary of the production. Created by acclaimed choreographer and Artistic Director Bengt Jörgen, Anastasia is set to an original full orchestra score by Russian/Canadian composer Ivan Barbotin. Barbotin has previously worked with Canada’s Ballet Jörgen to create two of the company’s most popular ballets: The Velveteen Rabbit and The Emperor’s New Clothes.

The mystery of what happened to the seventeen year old Grand Duchess has fascinated people for nearly a century, spanning a multitude of books, movies and musicals. Anastasia is both the tragic story of an innocent girl and the subject of modern mythology, as there is great speculation about what actually happened that fateful summer of 1918. The human drama of a young girl born to privilege and cast out into a world of immense heartache proves an extraordinarily gripping tale. This ballet explores the emotions, aspirations, and affections of this lovable yet controversial character as the world transforms around her.

Canada’s Ballet Jörgen, renowned for its ability to succinctly tell classical stories in an engaging and dramatic fashion, follows the daughter of the fallen Russian Tsar through the ballrooms of St. Petersburg, to the Russian Revolution, to captivity, and beyond…

Anastasia is a full-length ballet rich with incredibly detailed costumes, versatile sets, and exquisite lighting.

First performed by the Company in 2002, Carmina Burana is a work of unbridled passion that re-imagines traditional dances and techniques in a bold new way.

Set to Tchaikovsky’s musical gem “Serenade for Strings in C Major”, the first original ballet created by Balanchine in America has become iconic in the world of dance.
