Abstract:

Retrospective of the first 25 years of the National Ballet of Canada, told in the words of a sampling of its founders, board members, dancers past and present, and guest artists and choreographers. Archival footage and photographs of the company's early rehearsals, tours, and performances are juxtaposed with scenes of its current principal dancers, seen in rehearsals of John Cranko's Romeo and Juliet, Frederick Ashton's La fille mal gardée, and the classics Coppélia and The sleeping beauty. Among the topics discussed are the company's formative years; touring and its role in popularizing ballet in Canada; and the contributions of various dancers, choreographers, and administrators (including Celia Franca, Alexander Grant, Erik Bruhn, and Rudolf Nureyev).
