RWB will now be helping to introduce new Canadians to the Winnipeg arts and culture scene through their participating in the Cultural Access Pass program! This federal initiative provides a one-year complimentary admission to more than 1000 of Canada’s cultural treasures across the country as a gift to new citizens.
RWB was added to the list earlier this week along with 11
other Manitoba attractions, and we’re very excited to start showing new
Canadians our rich cultural history with our season-ending show, Pure Ballet.
We’re pleased to offer free admission to CAP members for performances of Pure Ballet for Friday and Saturday night’s performances at 7:30 pm and May 13 at 2:00 pm. To get your tickets, come to the RWB ticket wicket located at Centennial Concert Hall, 555 Main Street, 1 hour before each performance with your CAP membership card and photo identification.
