Characters don't just fly in this adaptation of the classic story of a boy that never grows up; they dance in the air. Royal Winnipeg (Canada) Ballet's popular choreographer Jorden Morris (Moulin Rouge) created this spectacular production in 2006, to such great success that it has since been set around North America, but never before in New England. Canada's The Globe and Mail said of the ballet's initial 2006 premiere: "Peter Pan is one of the prettiest ballets in the Royal Winnipeg Ballet repertoire from the starry skies behind the nursery window to the misty forests of Neverland and the colorful bridge deck of Hook's Jolly Roger."
