National Ballet of Canada - Nijinsky

Closed April 8, 2018

A triumph of dramatic intensity... the National Ballet rises to the challenge of presenting John Neumeier's Nijinsky, a spectacular, sprawling, surreal and often mind-bending homage to ballet's most legendary male dancer.

Why See National Ballet of Canada - Nijinsky?

a rich new production

From one ballet master to another - this triumphant celebration of Vaslav Nijinsky is the creation of John Neumeier, whose dedication to the man and his life is evident in his involvement in every aspect of this touching and insightful production.

A bright light of ballet in the first half of the 20th century, Russian Vaslav Nijinksy was clearly destined to be a star. After joining the Imperial Ballet School at 9 years old he went on to become one of the world's most groundbreaking male dancers, shattering expectations with his technique and virtuosity. Neumiere combines biography with memory-ballet in this beautiful tribute that also sheds a light on Nijinksy's stormy personal life, house arrest and eventual downfall into madness.
