National Ballet of Canada logoThe National Ballet of Canada App is Apple’s “App of the Week”

This App is my all-time favourite.  It’s simple to use, the layout is clean & sharp, the colours are warm & inviting, & the imagery is superb.  The ‘share’ features are brilliant, the videos work smoothly (via YouTube) and booking is a piece of cake – a cupcake even ! 

I’d urge you all to download this App even if you are not based in Canada and can’t see the company perform – it’s worth it !

January 31, 2011… The National Ballet of Canada’s recently launched iPhone application is Apple’s “App of the Week” and is listed in the “What’s Hot” section of the App Store. In less than two weeks, over 3,500 people have downloaded the free application, allowing users to take the National Ballet with them wherever they go and purchase tickets to the ballet – a first for a performing arts company in Canada.

With the National Ballet’s easy-to-use application, users can explore upcoming performances, get up-to-the minute updates on casting changes and traffic alerts, stream brand new mini documentaries, connect with fellow balletomanes on Facebook and Twitter, plan their evening at the ballet with directions, parking information and restaurants suggestions, and, best of all, purchase tickets anywhere, anytime.

To download, simply search The National Ballet of Canada on the App Store.

The National Ballet of Canada’s Winter Season will open in Toronto at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts with The Ninth International Competition for The Erik Bruhn Prize on March 5, 2011 and continues with Don Quixote, March 9 – 13, John Cranko’s Onegin, back by popular demand for five performances only from March 17 – 20, followed by a mixed programme featuring the Canadian premiere of Alexei Ratmansky’s Russian Seasons and George Balanchine’s Apollo and Theme and Variations.

The 2010/11 season is presented by CTV and The Globe and Mail.
