If there is something Calgary has in abundance, it has to be groundbreaking theatre companies. Our theatre scene has it all—top tier traditions, world premieres, boundary-pushing productions, enthusiastic community groups, stellar touring lineups and so much more.

Looking ahead to this year’s season might seem like a daunting task. Unless you know what’s coming, it’s awfully easy to miss a show that you would have loved to see. That’s where a little planning can go a long way.

So get out your calendar and let's talk theatre!

Invest YYC Spotlight: Flamenco at the Lantern

Love, light and darkness. Amor, luz, y oscuridad.

A flicker of light catches the corner of your eye. You glance over in time to see a woman all dressed in black holding a candlelit black lantern. Her eyes never leave him and she is in a trance as she makes her way to the stage. There is a rise in the singers’ voice and the slow steady heartbeat carries on. You feel the anticipation in the air growing...

Flamenco – Nada Mas is raising funds to bring Celedonio Garrido Santos (Cele), a Spanish Flamenco singer in Saskatoon, to Calgary to collaborate on a new production. Integrating Flamenco song with dance and guitar, the piece centers on the interplay between the traditional Flamenco song styles of jondo, representing darkness, and chico, representing light, with the common theme of love lost and found.
