The ballet company, which will also call the new venue home, will celebrate its first performance there with contemporary and classical pas de deux from ballets including Sleeping Beauty, Don Quixote, Herman Schmerman and Romeo and Juliet, performed by company principals and soloists.
A lavish post-performance dinner will raise around C$500,000 for the cash-strapped company.
Those not lucky enough to score tickets to the sold-out event will be able to watch a free live broadcast on a giant screen in Nathan Phillips Square at 6:30 p.m.
The National Ballet has over 50 dancers and its own orchestra. It presents 68 performances per season and will expand to 92 performances annually over the course of approximately 17 weeks in the new house.
