60 Years of Designing the Ballet
This exhibition offers an intimate look at the design of one of Canada’s most celebrated treasures – the National Ballet of Canada. The exhibition is organized thematically – highlighting the various ways in which the ballet as an institution is designed through hundreds of items from the ballet’s archive. The exhibition provides a private invitation into the world of one particular company. Unique to this exhibition is that the players themselves – the designers, dancers, creative directors, amongst others – are invited to comment on the process of designing costumes, dance, lighting, sets and so on. This back stage pass offers viewers a rare opportunity to engage with the theatricality, innovation, glamour and beauty that is the National Ballet of Canada.
