The Demise of Desire

By Annick MacAskill

The National Ballet of Canada’s premiere of choreographer John Neumeier’s A Streetcar Named Desire is an aesthetic triumph and a thought-provoking comment on the destructive nature of repressed sexuality and violence.

A Haunting Ballet That Does Not Leave the Mind

By Victoria Ellingham

As the audience filtered in to take their seats at the Four Seasons Centre on the evening of June 3rd, they were met with the sight of a lone chair, haphazardly left on its side in the middle of stage.

Madness Ensues at the Ballet

By Deanne Kearney

The ballet is not a biography of Nijinsky’s life per se, nor does it unfold in chronological order. It begins with Nijinsky’s last performance on January 19, 1919, when Nijinsky danced publicly for the last time and called his performance a “Wedding with God.”
