Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet is thrilled to open our 79th season with The Handmaid's Tale.

Whether it be from a stage, page, or a television screen, Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale is resonating worldwide as we observe a climate where a disdain for democratic institutions is on the rise.

Atwood’s dystopian bestselling classic was published in 1985 and has returned to the bestseller list in wake of the 2016 American Presidential election. Translated into over 40 languages, Atwood’s Governor General Award-winning novel has been adapted to film, opera, a novel-to-radio series, an award-winning audiobook, graphic novel, television series, and ballet by acclaimed New York-based choreographer Lila York.

York, along with a talented creative team, preserve the novel’s prophetic spirit and human story, creating a powerful and poignant interpretation of the gripping tale. Deftly attuned to highlighting the narrative’s dark romanticism, forbidden desires and domineering regime, York’s dance drama transports audiences to a society where human rights have been stripped away.

The Handmaid’s Tale television series received 13 Emmy nominations in its first season alone and is signed on for a second season, emphasizing the significance of Atwood’s novel in present day as civil liberties are viewed as threatened.

The Handmaid's Tale is made possible through the generous support of our Production Supporter Richardson Foundation.
