Fall Season

Anna Karenina North American Premiere A Ballet by John Neumeier
November 10 – 18, 2018
Inspired by Leo Tolstoy’s great prose masterwork, John Neumeier has adapted Anna Karenina in a two-act ballet set in present day rather than the 19th century, with music by Tchaikovsky, Alfred Schnittke and Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam. The work of a great literary artist meeting the imagination of a great interpretive choreographer, Anna Karenina is an unforgettable ballet experience.
Being and Nothingness & The Dream
November 21 – 25, 2018
Choreographic Associate and Principal Dancer Guillaume Côté’s Being and Nothingness, is inspired by Jean-Paul Sartre’s landmark philosophical work of the same name. Frederick Ashton’s The Dream, based on A Midsummer Night’s Dream, is one of the most universally admired ballet adaptations of the playwright’s work. 

Holiday Season

The NutcrackerDecember 8 – 30, 2018
The beloved holiday classic, The Nutcracker, choreographed by James Kudelka, with sets and costumes by Santo Loquasto and lighting by Jennifer Tipton, sold out for the past three seasons and returns for 26 performances in 2018. 

Winter Season

Paquita & Apollo & The Sea Above, The Sky Below March 1 – 3 and 20 – 21, 2019
Marius Petipa's Paquita dazzles with the panache and exoticism of 19th-century classicism and is a breathtaking example of technique. George Balanchine’s 1928 ballet, Apollo, almost singlehandedly established a new aesthetic that brought the language of classical ballet into a modern context, merging the past with the future in a way that would alter the conception of ballet forever. Choreographic Associate Robert Binet’s pas de trois The Sea Above, The Sky Below captivated audiences when it was performed at the 2017 MAD HOT BALLET Gala. 
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
March 7 – 17, 2019
Few children’s texts are as unique and have left such an imprint on the culture as Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Christopher Wheeldon brings his distinctive and imaginative sensibility to the work, creating a theatrical celebration like no other, with score by Joby Talbot, designs by Bob Crowley and lighting by Natasha Katz.   
The Thirteenth International Competition for The Erik Bruhn Prize
March 23, 2019
See the future stars of ballet in one night! Dancers from companies around the world compete, performing classical and contemporary works. 

Summer Season

Physical Thinking Two Company Premieres
William Forsythe Programme
The Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude & Approximate Sonata 2016 & The Second Detail
June 1 – 8, 2019
William Forsythe, provocateur, poet and master of anarchic beauty, has extended the reach of modern dance as few other contemporary choreographers have done. The Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude is a short, but fiercely demanding work created in 1996, demonstrating the bracing excitement of pure classical technique. Approximate Sonata 2016 is more subdued Forsythe, a reflective assemblage of pas de deux, set to a hushed, minimalist piano score by Thom Willems. The Second Detail, an astonishing work that was created for The National Ballet of Canada in 1991, is in many ways quintessential Forsythe – slyly mischievous, athletic and, above all, exhilarating.
June 12, 2019 

The Merry Widow
June 19 – 23, 2019
A frothy blend of comedy, romance and the delights of the Parisian Belle Époque in all its splendor, The Merry Widow entertains at every step. Based on the 1905 operetta of the same name by Franz Lehár, The Merry Widow, premiered by The Australian Ballet in 1974 with the great Dame Margot Fonteyn in the lead role of Hanna Glawari, entered the repertoire of The National Ballet of Canada in 1986. 
Venue: Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts, 145 Queen Street West, Toronto
