The cat’s meow of Toronto’s gala events, MAD HOT BALLET returns for the first time since 2019! Roar into the 20s with this Prohibition-free party to raise $1 million to support The National Ballet of Canada’s artists, performances and community initiatives. 

To start the evening, Hope Muir, Joan and Jerry Lozinski Artistic Director, has curated a swell one-hour performance of short works to showcase the National Ballet’s dancers:

  • A World Premiere by Principal Dancer Siphesihle November to celebrate First Soloist Tanya Howard before she retires from the stage
  • Anima Animus, Second Movement, by David Dawson
  • fractured, by incoming Choreographic Associate Ethan Colangelo who created this work for the Erik Bruhn Prize
  • Symphony in C, Fourth Movement, by George Balanchine

Following the performance, enjoy the MAD HOT Reception that features signature cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and special surprises.

Tickets for the Gala Performance and MAD HOT Reception start at $45.
