Paquin Entertainment Exclusively Representing Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet

(May 07, 2012)

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/07/12 -- Paquin Entertainment Group (PEG) is proud to announce exclusive worldwide representation of Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet (RWB), one of the most prestigious dance companies in North America.

As part of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet's recent strategy to create new and innovative touring opportunities, the RWB is taking a new approach to secure national and international engagements. Touring nationally and internationally on an annual basis is fundamental to the RWB's mission and mandate as a Canadian cultural institution. In the seven decades since its founding, touring has always been a fundamental part of RWB's basic operations. In terms of touring, the RWB is unique in Canada, spending 15 or more weeks a year on the road and performing in venues large and small in nearly 600 cities worldwide. In 2010, the Company embarked on a two-week tour of Israel performing in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa, as part of RWB's 70th Anniversary celebrations.

Paquin Entertainment Group CEO Gilles Paquin is an avid patron of the arts, but his love for dance was developed in a more personal way. His partner, Patti Caplette, was a soloist and Ballet Mistress who toured with the RWB for 15 years, thus giving Gilles rare insight into the particulars of the RWB's national and international touring. Gilles is delighted to bring his many years of experience and knowledge of the entertainment industry to work with such a renowned dance company. A partnership between the RWB and PEG is a natural fit considering the deep roots that they share.

This new alliance will support and amplify the RWB's tours by delivering the Company's critically-acclaimed artistic achievements including Moulin Rougea - The Ballet, Carmina Burana, Nutcracker, iconic repertoire pieces and the soon-to-premiere Twyla Tharp's The Princess & The Goblin to both loyal and new audiences around the world.
