Canada’s Ballet Jörgen’s Anastasia coming to Guelph’s River Run Centre on Jan. 21

GUELPH - Canada’s Ballet Jörgen will bring the magical and mysterious tale of Russian Grand Duchess Anastasia to life on River Run Centre’s Main Stage on Jan. 21, at 2pm.  

Canada’s Ballet Jörgen’s current production of Anastasia will mark the 100th anniversary of Anastasia’s story and 10th anniversary of the original production of the celebrated ballet.

The drama of a young girl born to privilege and cast into a world of immense challenge following the Russian Revolution serves as the basis of an extraordinary and gripping performance.

The mystery surrounding whether Anastasia – the teenage daughter of Russia’s last Tsar, Nicholas II – died with her family has fascinated the world for nearly a century, officials state. Books, movies and musicals have served to create a modern-day mythology surrounding her tragic story.

Anastasia explores the emotions, aspirations and affections of a lovable and controversial character as the world transforms around her during the summer of 1918.

Created by choreographer and artistic director Bengt Jörgen, the ballet is rich with detailed costumes, captivating sets and exquisite lighting.

The production is set to an original orchestral score by Russian-Canadian Composer Ivan Barbotin.

Canada’s Ballet Jörgen stages 120 performances each year, reaching more than 50,000 people in urban and rural communities across Canada and the northern United States.

Inspiring and connecting Canadians for more than 25 years, the company makes ballet and Canadian choreography a meaningful part of performance, education and community engagement.

Tickets to see Anastasia cost $42 for adults, $40 for seniors and students, and $25 for children 14 and under. There are $20 uGO tickets available to university and college students with valid ID and $5 eyeGO tickets are available to high school students with valid ID.

Tickets can be purchased at River Run Centre box office, by calling 519-763-3000 or at riverrun.ca/anastasia-canadas-ballet-jorgen.
