As a child, you were constantly caught singing your little heart out into a hairbrush. You pranced around, belting out Elton John’s soulful lyrics with little shame or sorrow.

You invested your time into praising his talent, yet you’ve never been as close as you’d like to your favourite star.

Why can’t life be a musical? At least you can pretend.Buytopia is inviting you to celebrate your true love properly, once and for all. This truly entrancing, entertaining ballet is the perfect way to celebrate your idol in style. What are you waiting for? “Love Lies Bleeding has already made Alberta Ballet buckets of cash following performances in three cities out west. Grand-Maître has also choreographed works to music by Sarah McLachlan and Joni Mitchell. And he’s in talks to create new productions to music by Leonard Cohen and k.d. lang. Really, who can blame him for exploiting his pop ballet sweet spot? When some classical ballet companies around the world are struggling to put bums in seats and shows like So You Think You Can Dance bring in millions of viewers, it’s clear there’s an appetite for this style of dance-theatre. One only hopes we’ll see more of it from Jean Grand-Maître.”- National Post“With all the exuberance and flair of Elton John himself, this was a spectacular, innovative ballet that really pushed the art form to new heights. From men in drag, to drug references, to homoerotic scenes, this was not a traditional ballet by any means. I was enthralled the entire show and it seemed to go by so fast as I got lost in the beautiful choreography and entrancing songs.”- Tessa Perkins“The screams of appreciation started early and came often during the debut performance of Alberta Ballet's Love Lies Bleeding. The production is clearly going to make buckets of money for the company. And frankly, what's not to like? First, there's the music of glam-rock superstar Sir Elton John and his lyricist Bernie Taupin. The non-stop parade of razzle-dazzle costumes by Martine Bertrand rivals Las Vegas for sheer spectacle. Adam Larsen's eye-popping projections provide the showy backdrop for the dancing (which is heavily into T and A).”- The Globe and Mail
