We've announced our new season! It is a family friendly, fairy tale fantasy! Much anticipated is Twyla Tharp's The Princess & The Goblin which premieres this fall and will be followed by the much loved holiday classic, Nutcracker. Magical love story, Sleeping Beauty and the big hit Moulin Rouge the Ballet will round off the season in the spring.
Yesterday's Season Launch event detailed some of The Princess & The Goblin's stunning costumes, designed by RWB's very own Anne Armit. The fashion show was enthusiastically received and the buzz continues!
Lastly, our cover girl Amanda Green strutted out in the Ballet Chic cover dress, designed by local Metis fashion designer Andréanne Dandeneau.

Happy Birthday! Many happy returns to Ms. Evelyn Hart on her special day. Best wishes from everyone at The Royal Winnipeg Ballet!
The RWB is currently on tour with Moulin Rouge® - The Ballet. Here is one review hot off the press...
"The acting and dancing abilities of the performers were impressive. Occasionally the action was interpretive to the point of confusion, but this happened rarely, and that is why there is a synopsis of events in the program."
"The audience gave the dancers a fully deserved standing ovation."
