Fumbling Towards Ecstasy
Featuring the Music of Sarah McLachlan
Following Alberta Ballet's triumphant tributes to the music of Canadian legend Joni Mitchell and England's international superstars Sir Elton John and Bernie Taupin, Fumbling Towards Ecstasy features the music of Canadian singer-songwriter Sarah McLachlan. This Grammy, Juno and Gemini Award-winning artist, who has sold more than 40 million recordings worldwide and raised more than $7 million for charities, is the perfect continuation to the company's exciting series of portraits of living music icons. Fumbling Towards Ecstasy traces the deeply spiritual odyssey of a woman's life from first romantic encounter to mature love.
Alberta Ballet is Canada's second largest ballet company and is renowned around the world for its repertoire of contemporary and classical productions.
The organization's roots were planted in the early 1950s by the late Dr. Ruth Carse before taking its official name of Alberta Ballet in 1966 in Edmonton, Canada. In 1990, Alberta Ballet and Calgary City Ballet merged into the company it is today.

The company invites leading and world renowned conductors, choreographers, and other guest artists to take part in its seasons, presents the best of Canada's ballet companies including the National Ballet of Canada, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal, and Ballet British Columbia, as well as leading foreign companies, such as Pilobolus and Ailey II.Please note: This is an Alberta Ballet production and Sarah McLachlan will not be at the performance.<< Back to full event listing
