are proud to present Ballet Jorgen’s Anastasia                  

                 Saturday February 24 at 7:30 pm                                                   sioban@keycitytheatre.com   

Canada’s Ballet Jörgen brings back the magical tale of the Russian Grand Duchess Anastasia for the 100th anniversary of the story and the 10th anniversary of the production. Created by acclaimed choreographer and Artistic Director Bengt Jörgen, Anastasia is set to an original full orchestra score by Russian/Canadian composer Ivan Barbotin. Barbotin has previously worked with Canada’s Ballet Jörgen to create two of the company’s most popular ballets: The Velveteen Rabbit and The Emperor’s New Clothes.

The mystery of what happened to the seventeen-year-old Grand Duchess has fascinated people for nearly a century, spanning a multitude of books, movies and musicals. Anastasia is both the tragic story of an innocent girl and the subject of modern mythology, as there is great speculation about what actually happened that fateful 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, renowned for its ability to succinctly tell classical stories in an engaging and dramatic fashion, follows the daughter of the fallen Russian Tsar through the ballrooms of St. Petersburg, to the Russian Revolution, to captivity, and beyond… Anastasia is a full-length ballet rich with incredibly detailed costumes, versatile sets, and exquisite lighting. As in previous performances, Ballet Jorgen invites several young dancers from local schools to take part.

Tickets are $45 | $39 | $35
