If you live in the Winnipeg area, you’re in for a ballet treat to kick off the fall season.
The Royal Winnipeg Ballet is hosting a free performance on October 4 in honor of it’s late Artistic Director Emeritus Dr. Arnold Spohr, who passed away in April. Spohr led RWB for three decades. The tribute will be co-hosted by choreographer Stephanie Ballard and Spohr’s biographer (and Pointe contributor!) Michael Crabb. RWB dancers and guest artists will perform work by Jiri Kylian, Peter Quanz, Itzak Galili and others.
Although tickets are free, you have to reserve them in advance by calling 1-800-667-4792.
