The Messiah

The fusion of tumbling, breakdancing, martial arts, and East Indian traditional dance moves fed my rapacious hunger for inspired ballet as I watched the Royal Winnipeg Ballet perform The Messiah. From the stark, but powerful opening scene of the dancers lying on their fronts with arms extended under the shadow of blue light to the effortless lifting of two embracing women by the male dancers this production delighted the viewer. Unfortunately the show ended after just 80 minutes, which seemed hardly adequate given inspired interpretation of the music and voices. It was an excellent evening out with my wife.
