In celebration of the company’s 85th year, the Royal Winnipeg Ballet 2024-2025 season features programs which honor the past, capture the present, and embrace the future. Winnipeg audiences will appreciate the variety of classical full-lengths, a story ballet, and an energetic repertory bill.

The first three programs are full-length ballets: Sir Peter Wright’s Giselle, Galina Yordanova and Nina Menon’s The Nutcracker, and Val Caniparoli’s Jekyll & Hyde

Following, and closing the season, is a mixed repertory evening:

  • Mark Godden’s Angels in the Architecture, set to Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring, celebrates the spirit and creativity of the Shakers by infusing a balletic foundation with gestural movements and symbolic props.
  • Boléro, an abstract contemporary work influenced by Maurice Ravel’s titular composition, pays homage to choreographer Stephan Azulay’s upbringing by incorporating stylistic attributes from farruca, a subset of flamenco.
  • Itzik Galili’s electrifying Hikarizatto is a rhythmic journey of off-balance, hyper-kinetic movements and kaleidoscopic kicks that serves as a testament to the authenticity and vitality of dance.
