The Faerie Queen

A Ballet Based on A Midsummer Night's Dream

THE FAERIE QUEEN
A Ballet Based on A Midsummer Night's Dream
With the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra


April 29th - May 3rd, 2015
Centennial Concert Hall

"The classically based but decidedly contemporary choreography flows smoothly, creating clever transitions from scene to scene." - Critical Dance

Experience this enchanting story filled with love, magic, and deception. Fantasy meets visually exquisite dance as choreographer John Alleyne paints the stage in this full-length ballet based on Henry Purcell's opera of the same name, and on Shakespeare's magical comedy, A Midsummer Night's Dream. Follow Puck, as the fairy with a penchant for causing chaos, ensnaring both humans and fairies alike in romance and confusion with her magical flower blossom. The Faerie Queen is an exploration of the contrasting elements of fantasy and reality - dark and light, mortal and immortal, male and female - and what happens when these powerful elements collide with one another.

La Bayadèrè:

Kingdom of the Shades + Ballet Vignette

LA BAYADÈRE
Kingdom of the Shades + Ballet Vignettes

May 21st - 23rd, 2015
Manitoba Theatre Centre, Main Stage

"The classically based but decidedly contemporary choreography flows smoothly, creating clever transitions from scene to scene." - Critical Dance

In conjunction with the RWB’s 75th anniversary, the RWB School Professional Division invites audiences to experience the talent and hard work of our student body firsthand. Marius Petipa's exotic La Bayadére was given its premiere at the Bolshoi Kamenny Theatre in St Petersburg in 1877. It was regularly performed within the former Soviet Union throughout the 20th century but was almost unknown in the West until 1961, when the touring Kiov Ballet performed the famous Kingdom of the Shades scene. Legendary India provides the setting for the tale of love, murder, and vengeful judgement by the gods, set to a lyrical score by Ludwig Minkus. La Bayadére's more frequently performed sequence is the dream-like Kingdom of the Shades, when a mesmerizing procession of ballernas dance in unison across a moonlit stage.
