I attended a preview of Ballet BC‘s first program for the new 2017-2018 season (season 32). Thanks to Ballet BC and Instameet Vancouver, registered participants were provided access to the venue to watch and photograph the preview performance. Season 32 Program 1 was held for open view to the public on three consecutive evenings: 2, 3, and 4 November.

I have not received compensation for this post, and I have no material connection to Ballet BC or the City of Vancouver. Thanks to Ballet BC, Queen Elizabeth Theatre, and Instameet Vancouver for providing access. I made all of the above photos on 2 November 2017.
