A very cool exhibit has just opened at the Manitoba Museum in downtown Winnipeg: Real Pirates: The Untold Story of the Whydah from Slave Ship to Pirate Ship. This is the first time the exhibit has been shown in Canada.
Produced by National Geographic and Premier Exhibitions, this exhibit includes more than 200 artifacts of early 18th century piracy, and tells the true story of the Whydah, which sank almost 300 years ago, and whose wreckage was recovered off the coast of Cape Cod over the course of two decades. Best of all, the exhibit includes a replica of the pirate ship that visitors can board!
The exhibit just opened last week, and will run until April 17, 2015. Get all the details on the best times to attend, and ticket pricing at the Manitoba Museum website.
Elvis is in the house! Or at least, the spirit of Elvis will be in the house at Centennial Concert Hall this weekend, as the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra presents “The King – A Tribute to Elvis“.
“Elvis Presley was the king…and he changed American music forever. We celebrate thrilling performances of his greatest hits, including Heartbreak Hotel, Love Me Tender, Don’t Be Cruel, Hound Dog and more – like never before with a full symphony. This is not an impersonator show and features four Broadway veteran singers in a “Jersey Boys” style show and Elvis’s greatest hits with a new twist, shake, rattle and roll!”
The show runs Friday, October 17th at 8pm, Saturday, October 18th at 8pm and Sunday, October 19th at 2pm. Buy tickets online at wso.ca or Ticketmaster.
