FOR MARCH BREAK, THE NATIONAL BALLET OF CANADA’S PREMIERE OF ‘PINOCCHIO’ UNTIL MAR. 24

The National Ballet of Canada’s ‘Pinocchio’ is based on the late-19th century Italian children’s tale ‘The Adventures of Pinocchio’ – not the Walt Disney version.

“What’s exciting about the journey of creating a ballet based off of an original text is that there’s a lot of freedom for interpretation that can defy the audience’s immediate associations with the classic tale,” dancer SKLAR CAMPBELL, who stars as Pinocchio said to CBC News.

“I think audiences will be excited by where this interpretation takes them and how it differs from the Disney animated film.”
