Though it may be a 'tale as old as time,' Inland Pacific Ballet has found a way to make Beauty and the Beast terrifically new in its dazzling original adaptation of the fabled story. When her father is abducted after picking a rose from the garden of the mysterious Beast, Beauty offers herself in exchange for her parent's safety. Thus begins a journey of love and transformation for both herself and the Beast. Featuring a score of classical masters including Dvorak, Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky and Mendelssohn, Beauty and the Beast also features spectacular sets, stunning costumes and amazing theatrical effects. The addition of sublime choreography makes this ballet a feast for the senses, one to be savored long after the lights come up. 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.”
