The Arts and Culture Centre is proud to present a tour of Ballet Jögen's Anastasia across Newfoundland. Anastasia is a full-length ballet rich with incredibly detailed costumes, versatile sets, and exquisite lighting.
Choreographed by Bengt Jörgen and set to an original full orchestral score by Russian/Canadian composer Ivan Barbotin, Anastasia tells the tragic story of the seventeen-year-old Grand Duchess and the mystery surrounding her disappearance in the summer of 1918. The human drama of a young girl born to privilege and cast out into a world of immense heartache proves an extraordinarily gripping tale. This ballet explores the emotions, aspirations, and affections of this lovable yet controversial character as the world transforms around her.
Canada’s Ballet Jörgen’s Anastasia premiered on October 23, 2007 and was created for the company’s 20th anniversary season. The Ballet is being restaged this season in celebration of CBJ’s 30th Anniversary and to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Anastasia’s disappearance. Anastasia is a signature work for the company reflecting a commitment to an all Canadian repertoire.
