On Sunday, November 30 (8 pm ET/5 pm PT) Canada's Bravo network will air a documentary titled Royal Winnipeg Ballet: 40 Years of One Night Stands. It's a curious title given that the company is 69 years old, and touring is still a crucial part of its identity.

Royal Winnipeg Ballet: 40 Years of One Night Stands recounts how a fledgling dance group from the Prairies survives challenge and misfortune to become one of the world's premier ballet companies. The impossible dream of British immigrants Gweneth Lloyd and Betty Farrally comes to fruition as the Royal Winnipeg Ballet Company the first professional ballet company in Canada.

Just saw the show - thanks again to volcanohunter for the reminder!

I enjoyed it very much - quite a few bits of history that I didn't know, and some wonderful archival footage.

All,

I am happy to reveal that we are going to be making 40 Years of One Night Stands available for digital download (purchase and rental) in the US and Canada later this year. Other countries to follow.

This will be the full "theatrical version" of the documentary, not the abridged version made for broadcast television.

Best,

Marc
