The National Ballet of Canada Wows Paris
Karen Kain, Artistic Director of The National Ballet of Canada, today announced that the company's tour to Paris with Nijinsky was a great success. Parisian critics raved about the landmark ballet by John Neumeier and audiences gave the company standing ovations night after night. The tour marked the National Ballet's return to Paris for the first time in 45 years. It was especially powerful for both the dancers and audience to be performing and experiencing Nijinsky at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, the theatre where the great dancer himself performed over 100 years ago. #NijinskyNBC
