April 20 – 22 Royal Winnipeg Ballet presents Svengali: A new ballet by Mark Godden with film projections by Guy Maddin. Set in a decadent world reminiscent of mid-century Weimar, the ballet presents an explosive new look at the original master of mind control. A gripping storyline fuels this complex psychological drama, unfolding with powerful athleticism and world-class artistry. Svengali is performed to a mesmerizing score featuring Rachmaninov, Liszt, Richard Strauss, Philip Glass, and the Amsterdam Klezmer Band. At the Centre for Performing Arts 8pm.  Tix
