Posted: Jan 2, 2003 MAKE A DATE WITH ROYAL WINNIPEG BALLET:40 YEARS OF ONE NIGHT STANDS, NOVEMBER 30
Toronto, ON (October 29, 2008) – Premiering Sunday, November 30 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on Bravo!, ROYAL WINNIPEG BALLET: 40 YEARS OF ONE NIGHT STANDS profiles the groundbreaking ballet company that set the dance world on Prairie fire. Until two British immigrants infused the city with a shot of culture, depression-era Winnipeg was a lonesome place. In the remote Canadian Prairies, Gweneth Lloyd and Betty Hey Farrally founded Canada’s first professional ballet company. Lloyd and Farrally laid the groundwork, but it was basketball-player-turned-ballet-dancer-turned-artistic-director, Arnold Spohr, who propelled the Royal Winnipeg Ballet to its place among the world’s best.
ROYAL WINNIPEG BALLET: 40 YEARS OF ONE NIGHT STANDS is produced by Merit Motion Pictures and Inside Out Productions in association with Bravo!, directed by Peabody Award Winner, Jeff McKay, and narrated by the Tony Award®-winning actor, Brent Carver.
