About Ballet in the Park:
Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet launches its 77th season with the summer favourite Ballet In The Park from July 27-29, 2016. This free family-friendly event returns to Assiniboine Park for three outdoor performances on the Lyric Theatre stage at 7:30 pm nightly. Presented by Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries, Ballet in the Park has been an annual Winnipeg tradition since the early 1970’s, attracting more than 20,000 people annually from Winnipeg and beyond.

“Where else would you be able to enjoy dance in such a unique outdoor setting complete with stage, lighting, and costumes. For many, Ballet In The Park is not just an annual summer tradition, it’s a perfect show for the entire family,” shares André Lewis, Artistic Director of Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet. “It’s a great way to experience ballet for the first time.”
