Emerging Arts Critics Programme

Pure, Smart Entertainment

By Anne Cass

Vitality, glamour and striking humour fill The National Ballet of Canada’s stage at the premiere of Alexander Ekman’s Cacti, with George Balanchine’s The Four Temperaments and Rubies at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts.

Emerging Arts Critics Programme

The Pleasure of Cacti’s Prickle

By Matthew Pariselli

Cacti is a delightfully silly and playful ballet, but also a sharply satirical and pulsating presentation, accentuated by its strategic place in The National Ballet of Canada’s recent mixed programme, which also features Balanchine’s The Four Temperaments and Rubies.
