The Alberta Ballet 2019-2020 season is full of premieres, classics, and contemporary ballet. In fact, Artistic Director, Jean Grand-Maître, has already begun working on what will be the world premiere of his Frankenstein, based on Mary Shelley’s horror novel. And Associate Artistic Director, Christopher Anderson, will be re-staging Swan Lake, the epitome of classical ballet. Also of note is the Canadian premiere of Septime Webre‘s Peter Pan.
Audiences can also continue their tradition of attending Alberta Ballet’s annual production of Edmund Stripes’ The Nutcracker, accompanied by the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra.
Works by George Balanchine, Helen Pickett, and Anne Plamondon will be featured in the first ever Alberta Ballet Unleashed program of contemporary dance.
