Canada All-Star Bal­let Gala

Four years ago, the breath­tak­ing Rus­sian dancer Svet­lana Lunk­ina left Moscow’s fabled Bol­shoi to join the Na­tional Bal­let of Canada. Now, she’s tap­ping her net­work to cre­ate a show­case with dancers from some of the world’s best com­pa­nies, such as the Paris Opera Bal­let and the Mari­in­sky. The pro­gram in­cludes a pas de deux from Mar­ius Petipa’s Rus­sian Sleep­ing Beauty and a duet from Wayne McGre­gor’s twitchy Chroma, set to mu­sic by the White Stripes’ Jack White. Oct. 28, Sony Cen­tre for the Per­form­ing Arts
