Nov 4: Denise Clarke, OC of Calgary’s One Yellow Rabbit

Set aside time to browse the Alberta Ballet Boutique
for a souvenir that evokes Dangerous Liaisons for you!

We’ve curated an array of novels.  See if you can guess the theme based on the these titles we'll have available: Dangerous Liaisons, Griffin and Sabine, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society.

You can also celebrate the nostalgia of the hand-written letter by selecting an old school accessory for your desk or steep yourself in the opulence of 17th century French high society with a choice of fragrance and colognes.

Alberta Ballet Boutique is in the main lobby.   It’s a great way to support Alberta Ballet!


Make Your Night Out a Dress-Up Event:
#RisqueBallet

After all, it is Halloween!  How can you adapt your look to channel French high society?
