Winter Fantasia, a treasured holiday tradition, features two cherished winter stories rooted in Scandinavian folklore and brought to life through the magic of dance. In choreographing Winter Fantasia’s “Once Upon a Winters Eve” and the “Norse Tree of Life”, Kanopy’s co-artistic director, Lisa Thurrell, was inspired by her childhood and her imaginary journeys into the lives of the mythological Tomten, a mischievous but protective spirit in Scandinavian folklore, and by the shimmering fairies who appear during the winter solstice.

Also on the program, a delightful performance of a Kanopy original, “Winter in The City”, inspired by Leonard Bernstein’s score from “On the Town”. “On the Town” follows the fun and romantic adventures of three exuberant sailors on a 24-hour leave in New York — a wonderful town! Kanopy’s Winter in the City is a delightful twist on that iconic tale — with a starry-eyed innocent small-town actor, dancer or dreamer at center stage trying to make it in a city wrapped up in the warm romance and frosty magic of winter. Think Peggy Sawyer in 42nd Street stepping out into the mean streets of the “City” — nervous, but with anticipation and wonder and ready to capture its heart.
