Ballet Jörgen’s Anastasia: Dance Series @ Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre
Feb 20 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Ballet Jörgen's Anastasia: Dance Series @ Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre | Vernon | BC | Canada

For the third show in our 2017/2018 Dance Series, the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society is proud to present Ballet Jörgen's Anastasia, on Tuesday, February 20 2018 at 7:30 pm.

Canada’s Ballet Jörgen 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 score by Russian/Canadian composer Ivan Barbotin, Anastasia features a 16-person ensemble and flawless direction from choreographer Bengt Jörgen.

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.

Bengt Jörgen, artistic director and CEO of Ballet Jörgen, chose Anastasia based on his personal interest in Russian history and the real-life disappearance of the young girl in 1918. Having worked with composer Ivan Barbotin before on two of the company’s most popular ballets The Velveteen Rabbit and The Emperor’s New Clothes, their partnership has made the production impossible to resist.

Ballet Jörgen 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.

Tickets for Anastasia are $45 for adults, $42 for seniors, $40 for students and are now on sale through the Ticket Seller Box Office by calling 250-549-SHOW (7469) or online at www.ticketseller.ca.
