The Rewind tutu is an original creation designed by the festival participants of the 2011 Official Canada Day Celebrations in Ottawa, ON. Guests shared their excitement about the National Ballet’s new repertoire and the Royal Visit by creating over 900 pocket watches, reminiscent of the one belonging to the White Rabbit who graced the stage with the National Ballet in London, England 24 years ago in Alice and our North American Premiere of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland on June 4, 2011. 

The Official Canada Day Celebrations are facilitated annually by the National Capital Commission. The NCC-CCN is a Crown corporation of the Government of Canada. Their goal is to ensure that Canada’s Capital Region is a source of national pride and significance.
