Beautifully executed. Programming can be hit or miss, but they always deliver. I was particularly taken with Going Home Star. It is a bit pricey, but there is an excellent option for under 30's.

A lot of rolling around on the floor with very little dancing. Awful. Principal dancer did nothing except prance around. Why call it a ballet? It was like kids rolling around on the ground pretenting. Too much acting and NO dancing. $100+ each what a waste.

However, having attended both the Mariinsky Ballet in St. Petersburg and the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, I can say the Royal Winnipeg Ballet is definitely in the same... More

There's nothing quite like going to see a live performance of the Nutcracker to get you in the holiday spirit. The high-caliber performance will leave you in amazement. A wonderful show. Thank you RWB!
