Peter Pan winds up 15th season next month
As a season finale May 18 and 19, Ballet Victoria presents an updated take on Peter Pan, which was the company’s first-ever performance. Artistic and executive director Paul Destrooper has choreographed a new version with a contemporary twist on J.M. Barrie’s take of the fearless boy who refuses to grow up.
