Les Grands Ballets Canadiens presents

Préludes / Double Bill


Dim Light of Dawn is a tribute to the genius that was Sergei Rachmaninoff. Talented Swiss choreographer Ken Ossola leads us into the mind of the famous Russian composer and pianist, exploring the light and darkness that inhabit us all. It is a lyrical and romantic new work full of emotion.

RE-(II) is an invitation to embark on a journey. American choreographer Shen Wei unfolds the memories of his trip to the Temple of Angkor Wat, in Cambodia. Danced to the soothing rhythms of traditional Cambodian music, this ballet reflects the nature, sounds and culture of the ancient site.

Les Grands Ballets Pre-Show Talks

Beginning an hour before each performance, spectators are invited to pre-show talks. These exciting half-hour talks are a rare opportunity to gain insight on the work presented.  Each pre-show talk will be hosted by journalist Shelley Pomerance who will share anecdotes on the production’s creative process, inspiration, music and costumes. A great way to start the evening.

Purchase a ticket at the cost of $5 at Place des Arts ticket office counter. Admission is free for Les Grands Ballets subscribers. Please note that for individual ticket holders, both the performance ticket and the pre-show talk ticket will be required at the entrance.
