Ballet BC

BOLD AND INNOVATIVE CONTEMPORARY BALLET

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR EMILY MOLNAR

Founded in 1986 and under the leadership of Artistic Director Emily Molnar since 2009, Ballet BC is an internationally acclaimed collaborative and creation-based contemporary ballet company. Bold and innovative, Ballet BC’s distinctive style and approach have helped it make an exceptional and valuable contribution to the development of dance in Canada. The Company regularly performs at Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre in addition to touring nationally and internationally.

Ballet BC’s 2017–18 season consists of three extraordinary programs, featuring works by highly acclaimed Canadian and international choreographers, including their Resident Choreographer Cayetano Soto, Johan Inger, Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar, Emily Molnar, and a full-length retelling of Shakespeare’s classic Romeo and Juliet by Medhi Walerski.

For the holidays in December, Ballet BC presents Alberta Ballet’s spectacular retelling of The Nutcracker in an extravagant production with Tchaikovsky’s glorious musical score played live by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.

The season closes with the remount of Cayetano Soto’s striking Beginning After, the eagerly anticipated return of Bill by longtime creative partners Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar, and a world premiere by Ballet BC’s own Molnar in collaboration with the award-winning Phoenix Chamber Choir.
