The National Ballet of Canada’s Principal Dancer Guillaume Côté celebrates his 20th anniversary with The National Ballet of Canada this season. He reprises the iconic title role in George Balanchine’s masterpiece, Apollo.

George Balanchine’s Apollo is one of the signal moments in both the choreographer’s oeuvre and in the legacy of cultural modernism. The famous collaboration between Balanchine and Igor Stravinsky produced some of ballet’s most legendary works, and perhaps none was as groundbreaking nor realized their aims of a neo-classical art form, as this 1928 ballet.

Apollo is onstage with Night & The Sea Above, The Sky Below Paquita March 1 – 3 and 20 – 21, 2019 at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts.
