Many Thanks to our Dracula Attendees
A gracious “thank you” to our audience members (some who attended numerous shows!) that made Dracula, our 2016-17 season opener, an immense success. The Royal Winnipeg Ballet performed to full audiences from October 26 -30 at the Centennial Concert Hall. We were especially thrilled to see so many attendees dressed in costumes!
Dracula received 4.5/5 stars from the Winnipeg Free Press in a review by Holly Harris. “It’s likely many in the mixed-generation audience went home Wednesday night fearful of things that go bump in the night — even ballet dancers”, said Harris. Read the full review here.
Here is just some of the feedback we received about the ballet on social media:
