Ballet BC
“Svengali is beautiful, challenging and a visual turn-on. The ballet is, simply, a triumph, danced with explosive discipline by this talented company.”


The Centre for the Performing Arts in Vancouver

Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet displays its classical roots with the Vancouver premiere of Svengali, choreographed by Mark Godden — the creative genius behind RWB’s acclaimed Dracula. 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.
