It is presented with the Canadian premiere of The Tempest by Alexei Ratmansky, an elegant and beautifully condensed evocation of the Shakespeare play, set to music by Sibelius and sets and costumes by Santo Loquasto. The Tempest is a co-production of the National Ballet and American Ballet Theatre.

The company is part of and developing several future projects for upcoming seasons. The Winter’s Tale, a new full-length ballet by the same creative team behind Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, choreographer Christopher Wheeldon, composer Joby Talbot, designer Bob Crowley and lighting designer Natasha Katz, will make its Canadian premiere in the 2015/16 season. The Winter’s Tale is the company’s second co-production with The Royal Ballet, Covent Garden, London and will premiere in London on April 10, 2014.
A new full-length adaptation of the well-known novella Le Petit Prince by ‎Antoine de Saint-Exupéry is currently in development. The first workshop in July 2013 brought together the creative team of choreographer Guillaume Côté, composer Kevin Lau, librettist Adam Gopnik, designer Michael Levine and multi-media director Ben Shrinian. A second workshop is scheduled this spring. Le Petit Prince will make its world premiere in the 2015/16 season.
