Thrilling in scope, John Neumeier’s dazzling ballet is theatrical and unflinching, paying reverent, astute tribute to a tortured genius.  Vaslav Nijinsky changed the trajectory of dance in a spectacular and ephemeral career that came to an abrupt end with his descent into madness at the age of only 29. In this exhilarating production, the entire company draws on its extraordinary heart and stamina to bring to dramatic life a provocative and fascinating exploration of the artist’s complex inner journey. Nijinsky  is an unforgettable, balletic tour de force of artistry, narrative and spectacle.  

Lead philanthropic support for Nijinsky is provided by The Catherine and Maxwell Meighen Foundation, an anonymous friend of the National Ballet, The Producers’ Circle and The Volunteer Committee of The National Ballet of Canada.

"Nijinsky is definitely a jewel in the crown for the National."
