Student Matinees

COVID-19 Update

The National Ballet of Canada, along with the global community, has faced extraordinary challenges due to COVID-19. The safety and health of our artists, staff, patrons and community is our foremost priority. In accordance with government orders and public health guidance, the National Ballet has cancelled all June performances and rescheduled the world premiere of Swan Lake to June 2021.

We are disappointed to have to cancel this performance but want to assure you that if you purchased tickets to the Student Matinee of Swan Lake on Thursday June 11, 2020, your tickets will be refunded. Please contact info@national.ballet.ca or call 416 345 9595 for assistance.

These unprecedented circumstances have required Artistic Director Karen Kain to make further changes to the 2020/21 season.
