    With just a few days left to apply to attend this year’s TEDxToronto conference, we would like to share some exciting news. On October 22nd, the conference will open with a dedicated performance by The National Ballet of Canada.

    Robert Binet, National Ballet Choreographic Associate, will speak about ballet’s relationship to issues in contemporary society and present excerpts from his recent work, Orpheus Becomes Eurydice. Never seen before in Toronto, the piece explores the ideas of connection, communication and loss embedded in the Greek myth of Orpheus. One of the top international ballet companies, The National Ballet of Canada is renowned for its diverse classical and contemporary repertoire. With 70 dancers and its own orchestra, the company has been led by Artistic Director Karen Kain since 2005.
