Versatility, technical excellence and a captivating style are the trademarks of Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet, qualities that have garnered both critical and audience acclaim. These qualities keep the RWB in demand as it presents more than 100 performances every season.
The repertoire of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet embraces a wide array of dance styles, which includes classical story ballets and an intriguing collection of shorter dances. The RWB achieves a fine balance between the classical traditions of Europe and the boldness of contemporary ballet, which in turn has produced a unique style.
Artistic Director, Andre Lewis has worked to revitalise the company’s repertoire with the commissioning of new full-length ballets such as Dracula, Nutcracker, The Magic Flute, Peter Pan and Moulin Rouge ®– The Ballet. Since its World Premiere in 2009, Moulin Rouge ® – The Ballet has been seen by over 100,000 people in more than 30 cities across North America, bringing cheering audiences to their feet wherever it tours!
