Canada's Ballet Jorgen takes us all the way back to 1918 Russia with their presentation of Anastasia. This full-length story ballet is brought to our stage, celebrating the well-known story's 100th anniversary. Set to an original full orchestra score by Russian/Canadian composer Ivan Barbotin, Anastasia features a 16-person ensemble and flawless direction from choreographer Bengt Jorgen.
Anastasia centers around a seventeen-year-old Grand Duchess who is born to privilege but cast out into a post-revolutionary world. Find out what will become of her as the innocent daughter of the fallen Russian Tsar faces love, loss and heartache in an unknown world. This popular tale has inspired a multitude of books, movies and musicals over the last century, making the character the subject of modern mythology.
Ballet Jorgen is renowned for its ability to succinctly tell classic stories in an engaging and dramatic fashion. Paired with breathtaking costumes, impressive sets and superb lighting, Anastasia invites audiences to discover the tragic mystery of the young Grand Duchess and explore romance and mythology in the ballrooms of St. Petersburg and beyond.
