Description

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.”
