The Royal Winnipeg Ballet presents Snow White Canadian Première
7:30pm Sunday 2pm
A new acquisition that showcases everything the RWB does best – bold character acting, creative interpretations of familiar stories, and larger-than-life staging and costumes. André Lewis O.M. has been aspiring to bring this production to Winnipeg and in 2023, the dream is finally realized!
Experience the Canadian première of this mature twist on the original Brothers’ Grimm story of Snow White. Step into an enchanted narrative filled with strong, contemporary movement and characters magnificently costumed by Jean Paul Gaultier. The narcissistic, seductive Queen seeks power in her beauty and will stop at nothing to hold on to that influence – even at the expense of her ingenue daughter-in-law Snow White. Set to Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 1, Snow White’s journey through the stages of her life mirrors the music’s evolution from optimism to depravity and finally to triumph.
