Dubbed the "naughty boy" of dance by Martha Graham, Taylor's not only one of the greatest modern choreographers of the 20th century, he's also one of the 21st century's most daring innovators, still creating well into his 80s. His 16-member company embodies his continuing genius and nurtures new talent -- Tony winners Twyla Tharp and David Parsons are among its many distinguished alumni. Expect a wonderful show of kinetic movement, enthralling storytelling and surprising humor from one of the true legends of the form. Learn More

Considered Canada’s premiere ballet company, Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s versatility, technical excellence and captivating style have garnered both critical and audience acclaim. The company will present Mauricio Wainrot’s Carmina Burana, a sensual powerhouse of modern ballet set to Carl Orff’s 20th century masterpiece, featuring an epic cast of dancers. The commanding movements of this five-part contemporary work highlight the dancers’ physical strength, as the synchronicity of the large group of artists on stage gives the perception of a cast of thousands. Wainrot’s non-narrative ballet shifts from soft and lyrical to bombastic, creating a wide range of human emotions that is bound to take you on a mystical journey. George Balanchine’s landmark piece, Concerto Barocco, offers a visually stimulating and ingenious display of seamless choreography, intertwining movement with the complexities and pureness of J.S. Bach’s music, leaving audiences to “see the music, and hear the dancing.”
