The talented young dancers of Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre perform two of ballet's most lyrical works: Sleeping Beauty and Paquita. With a sumptuous score by Tchaikovsky, a fairy tale plot of the triumph of good over evil and classical courtly style, Sleeping Beauty is the ideal production for Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre's accomplished student dancers. Paquita is Petipa's virtuosic 1881 ballet about a young girl who saves the life of a young French officer, who himself is the target of a Spanish governor who plots to have him killed. A much-loved ballet that showcases the talents of its soloists, Paquita's choreography includes the famous Grand Pas Classique, the Pas de Trois and the Children's Mazurka. 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.”
