The reception for the Adolphus Burton Collection is Sunday February 5 between 12:30-3:30 at the Gallery: 1401 5th St N.

This exhibition features 65 pieces of the Adolphus Burton Collection, held by the Cranbrook History Centre. Beginning in 1985, Adolphus (“Duffy”) set out to paint as many of the Cranbrook and area pioneers as he could. The exhibition features many of these portraits, as well as several landmarks. Adolphus completed more than 100 of these paintings before he passed away in 1995.

Ballet Jörgen – Cinderella Key City Theatre
Ballet Jörgen’s Cinderella is a classical ballet with modern, dramatic sensibilities perfect for all balletomane and aspiring ballet dancers!
Bengt Jörgen’s Cinderella is an innovative take on the classic fairy tale. Jörgen’s choreography balances the fairy tale elements of the story with a contemporary treatment of Cinderella and her family relationships.
Returning to the original Russian tradition of having women perform the roles of the stepsisters, Jörgen builds a more realistic and human look at Cinderella and her circumstances, and then uses these scenes to both counterpoint and highlight the magical aspects of the story.
Glenn Davidson’s set design creates a fantastical environment based on the idea of the natural world reclaiming man-made structures. Inspiration for the set pieces is drawn from ice storms and old growth forests. Costume designs by Robert Doyle playfully echo each character’s personality.
