The National Ballet of Canada opens its season with Christopher Wheeldon's ballet, The Winter's Tale. Fairy tale, comedy, tragedy and fantasy, The Winter’s Tale, based on Shakespeare's play, is a story of loss and redemption, a meditation on love, jealousy and the nature of family. See Previews.

The Goat or Who is Sylvia? America’s great provocateur, Edward Albee, invites us to a contemporary Greek tragedy with his trademark subversive humour and shocking play about marital infidelity and the devastation of a family. See Reviews.
