RWB presents The Princess & The Goblin
Centennial Concert Hall, Winnipeg
October 17 to 21, 2012
The Royal Winnipeg Ballet starts their season off with Twyla Tharp's "enchanting" and "funny" ballet, The Princess & The Goblin.
Over her long and illustrious career, Twyla Tharp has brought ballet into the popular imagination the world over and her work has irrevocably changed the face of modern dance. Tharp's defining new ballet, adapted from a fairy tale by Victorian fantasy novelist George MacDonald, follows young Princess Irene on a courageous quest as she discovers the town's children being kidnapped by the Goblin. Guided by her Great-Great-Grandmother, the heroine succeeds in rescuing the children against the odds in a transformative and inspiring story of humility and forgiveness.
