According to weatherman (and stone cold fox) Pete Delkus, Canada has ruined our chances of having an actual winter this year by refusing to play nice and send us a heaping helping of arctic air. So, this summer when you’re battling hoards of fleas and swatting the legions of mosquitoes usually killed off by arctic air, you can blame Canada. But while they may have been a bit greedy with the little bit of arctic air they got this year, they are more than willing to share with us when it comes to the arts. In fact, they’ve generously packed up the Royal Winnipeg Ballet and sent them down south to perform Moulin Rouge-The Ballet, a beautifully-choreographed and high energy piece that’ll make you forget all about that new winter coat you didn’t even get a chance to break in. A love story that’s equal parts exhilarating and heartbreaking, Moulin Rouge-The Ballet can be seen at the Eisemann Center, 2351 Performance Drive, on Friday, February 3 at 8 p.m. Tickets may be purchased at eisemanncenter.com for $45 to $65.
