Alberta Ballet & the Documentation of Performance

Thu, Sep 1 - Sat, Dec 17

Provincial Archives of Alberta, 8555 Roper Rd NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 5W1, Canada map

The Provincial Archives of Alberta is pleased to present Alberta Ballet & the Documentation of Performance, an exhibit in celebration of Alberta Ballet’s 50th Anniversary. Alberta Ballet donated its extensive archives to the Provincial Archives of Alberta in 2012, where the records were appraised, arranged, rehoused, described and made available to the public. The completeness of the Alberta Ballet archives and the wide array of records therein enabled this retrospective survey of the company’s first fifty years and is a fine example of performing arts in the archives.
