NIJINSKY by courageous Canadians in Paris

10/18/17 •

PARIS/FRANCE: Karen Kain, Artistic Director of The National Ballet of Canada, finally presented for the first time in 45 years, the growing Canadian company in Paris. The TrandscenDanses festival at the Theatre des Champs Elysees has presented work as exciting as Alexander Ekman’s A Swan Lake with den Norske Opera Ballett recently and so John Neumeier’s ballet NIJINSKY is a perfect choice for the Canadians to present because of the challenging choreography that highlights the improving company quality. A few dancers were exceptional and brought the company level to a new standard than it is known for.
