PARKSVILLE — Just a small reminder: classical ballet comes to Parksville’s Chrysler Theatre tonight.

A return engagement of the Canadian Pacific Ballet out of Victoria follows their first up-Island performance in Qualicum Beach last year. It’s a reprise of the La Flute Magique for the CPB — they performed the ballet in Victoria in May of this year.

The ballet itself is not heavy. It’s a lighter show with plenty of comedy — and the dancers have been preparing for the last two weeks to make it special.

The performance of La Flute Magique — the story drawing upon the legendary magical flute which judges a person’s worth — is Fri., Nov. 16 at Parksville’s Chrysler Theatre (in the Community and Conference Centre on Jensen Avenue). Show time is 8 p.m. Tickets are available at the door or by calling 1-877-335-2522. More information about CPB can be found at www.canadianpacificballet.org.
