80 Years - A Retrospective - Cancelled

PRESENTING SPONSOR
Premier Sponsor: BMO

At times like this, we are reminded of the importance of the arts to unite us and reflect our shared humanity. We are encouraged by the incredible support and generosity of our patrons. We will continue to create art in the next weeks, months, and years and are deeply grateful to have you with us every step of the way.

As of today, 80 Years – A Retrospective scheduled for May 6-10, 2020 has been cancelled as a necessary and responsible action to protect our artists, staff and our patrons

We understand these are uncertain times and for your convenience, we are offering the following options:

  • Apply a credit to your account which can be applied towards a 2020/21 performance or subscription package and we would like to offer you an additional $20 to your account.
  • Donate your ticket in exchange for a charitable tax receipt
  • Receive a full refund.

These options will be available effective immediately until end of day on Tuesday, May 5, 2020 which is the day before 80 Years – A Retrospective was scheduled to open. Please note a change in box office hours on our website as we do our best to support you.

The RWB is encouraging everyone who has a ticket to a live performing arts event that is cancelled due to COVID-19 to consider donating your investment rather than requesting a refund. The livelihood of countless performing arts professionals in your neighborhood is at stake and in many cases charitable receipts are available.

The arts have always played an important role during times of distress. Since our inception 80 years ago, Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet has created art that elevates the human spirit and fosters a sense of shared humanity and we will continue to do so.

André Lewis
RWB Artistic Director & CEO

​80 Years – A Retrospective, illuminates three artistic directors whose vision each had a momentous role in the Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s history. Agnes de Mille’s exuberant and amusing Rodeo celebrates Arnold Spohr, Mark Godden’s one-act masterpiece Angels in the Architecture pays tribute to John Meehan, and Toer van Schayk’s Seventh Symphony, first set by the Dutch National Ballet, honours Henny Jurriens.
