A Magical Madness: Nijinsky

By Eve van Eeden

Aristotle once said: “No great genius ever existed without a touch of madness”. Celebrating the man who personified this expression, Nijinsky is brought to life by The National Ballet of Canada.

Love Strikes a Chord: Nijinsky

By Wei Shen

Director Stanley Kubrick was once mesmerized by Napoleon Bonaparte. Choreographer John Neumeier’s similar obsession with “Le Dieu de la Danse”, Vaslav Nijinsky, has crystallized into the National Ballet of Canada’s production Nijinsky.

Definitive Motif in The Winter’s Tale

By Arianna Benincasa

Choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon, “The Winter’s Tale” takes a contemporary approach to Shakespeare’s comedic, romantic and tragic “problem play” about jealousy, familial bonds and love.

Something Between an Essay, a Pseudo-Story About Little Robo-Bugs and Another Excuse to Talk About Virtuosity

By Fabien Maltais-Bayda

Choreographer Antony Hamilton’s “Natural Orders” ends with a cluster of small light-sensitive mechanisms gliding about a section of the stage. While from a distance they appear mostly as points of luminescence, they look, up close, a bit like rubber toothbrush heads or many-legged critters.
