Elton John-inspired ballet opens in Toronto

Elton John-inspired ballet opens in Toronto

Love Lies Bleeding runs until Nov 12
Alberta Ballet’s Love Lies Bleeding opened in Toronto on Nov 8 at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts -- complete with an entourage of local drag queens.

Set to the classic pop songs written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin, it follows a character called the Elton Fan. The production deals with drug abuse and HIV and includes a long kiss between the two lead male dancers.

The ballet premiered in Calgary a year and a half ago and is set to play Montreal and Ottawa in the spring of 2013. The Toronto run goes until Saturday, Nov 12.
