A Russian Grand Duchess, born to privilege, is cast out into a post-revolutionary world… What will become of her?
Canada’s Ballet Jörgen brings back the magical 100 year oldtale of the lovable yet controversial Russian Grand Duchess Anastasia.
Part of the company’s repertoire for 10 years, the story is set to an original score by Russian/Canadian composer Ivan Barbotin.
With incredibly detailed costumes, versatile sets and exquisite dancers and lighting, the tragic story of an innocent girl and the mystery and speculation about what truly happened on a fateful summer of 1918, is brought to life by acclaimed choreographer and Artistic Director Bengt Jörgen.
