Fumbling Towards Ecstasy

Alberta Ballet in rehearsal.

In a delightful duet of companies, Ballet BC presents Alberta Ballet’s Fumbling Towards Ecstasy this season. The performance features the music of Canadian singer-songwriter Sarah McLachlan—the latest in a series of Alberta Ballet tributes to famed musicians such as Joni Mitchell, Sir Elton John, and Bernie Taupin—and traces a woman’s spiritual and romantic journey. Alberta Ballet gave MONTECRISTO a look behind the scenes, and inside the studio, where dancers spent countless hours in rehearsal in preparation for the performance, which runs November 14 to 16 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre.
