Ballet in the Park

The Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s 80th season begins with Ballet in the Park, a treasured tradition that spans over four decades. Taking on Assiniboine Park’s Lyric Theatre stage at 7:30 pm daily, this free, family-friendly performance is a wonderful way to experience ballet under the prairie sky.

Feeling lucky? We will have a draw on-site at Ballet in the Park for a chance to win a three-pack subscription to our 80th season valued at $300! Attendees may enter the contest at the CAA tent.

PRE-SHOW KIDS ACTIVITIES

Before the performance begins, children can enjoy face painting, crafts, and pointe shoe tosses for prizes. For the first time ever, the RWB School will host a Creative Movement class from 7-7:20 pm for the budding dancers in the pre-show kids’ area.
