Ballet B.C. -The Goldberg Variations - Side 2: Adam & Eve & Steve

Visit Swanktrendz

Ballet BC, BC's premiere company, is known for bringing both traditional and contemporary dance to its audiences. Not only does Ballet BC feature its own company, but it also invites other dance troups from around the world. At Christmas, the Moscow Ballet was here dancing in The Nutcracker, and in January we were supposed to see the Korean Ballet.

Unfortunately, the financial crash during the Fall came at the worst possible time for the ballet company, and the resulting drop in ticket sales put Ballet BC into receivership. The media attention that was drawn to this, in the end, saved the perennial Christmas favourite, The Nutcracker, but the Korean Ballet Company was cancelled for January.

In the meantime, restructuring was taking place behind closed doors , and the good news is that Ballet BC is back on its feet with much firmer footing.

You can look forward to them performing The Goldberg Variations - Side 2: Adam & Eve & Steve, a world premiere by James Kudelka (along with Carmen) on Feb. 26-28 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre.
