A strong Hungarian dance flavor touches the traditional steps of this storyless classical ballet. It was first produced by the New York City Ballet in New York on November 9, 1955, and entered the Royal Winnipeg Ballet's repertoire in the 1961-62 season.

This pas de deux is considered by many critics to be the most powerful piece of choreography conceived by Norbert Vesak.

For choreographer Nils Christe, the three parts of Bartok's Concerto signify three colors: the power and joy of life of yellow; the harmony and settling qualities of blue; and the full and fiery richness of red. These characteristics are paralleled with the relationships of six couples. Translucent Tones received its premiere by the Nederlands Dans Theatre in 1979, and was first performed by thc Royal Winnipeg Ballet in March 1984. It is dedicated to Arlettc Van Boven.

Dutch choreographer Jiri Kylian has used the music from Haydn's "Clock" Symphony as inspiration for this ballet spoof, a happy take-off on practically every hackneyed ballet cliche. Symphony in D received its Royal Winnipeg Ballet premiere on October 17, 1984.
The Royal Winnipeg Ballet is Canada's oldest existing professional ballet company, founded in 1939 and receiving its Royal title in 1953, the first granted under the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. Under Arnold Spohr's artistic direction since 1958, the ensemble has progressed to its present position among the world's internationally renowned companies. The Winnipeg's current season began June 22nd with its participation in the Los Angeles Olympic Arts Festival and a late summer tour to Greece and Egypt. Other tours will take them throughout eastern, midwestcrn, and western portions of the United States and Canada. This weekend's performances mark the company's fifth visit to Ann Arbor.
The Royal Winnipeg Ballet gratefully acknowledges the support of the Canada Council, the Touring Office of the Canada Council; the Province of Manitoba, Department of Culture, Heritage and Recreation; the Manitoba Arts Council; the City of Winnipeg; the Winnipeg Foundation; and private and corporate philanthropy.
