Storytelling for our time 


Akram Khan’s Jungle Book reimagined © Ambra Vernuccio

Shows with larger than life stories  

Are you drawn to narrative stories? The season offers you tales that will take you by the hand and accompany you during the performance. Immerse yourself in works inspired by classic tales or by biographical narratives updated with a modern touch. Venture into new territory, and come away entertained, dazzled and reenergized.  

Delight your inner child with the majestic ballet Cinderella performed by Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, enjoy a modern retelling of Snow White performed by Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet in which the wicked stepmother steals the show, or share Mowgli’s concern for climate change in Jungle Book reimagined, the Akram Khan Company’s take on the Kipling classic.  And of course, Nutcracker returns as a beloved holiday favourite.  

Let dance tell you a story!
