A Message from Bengt

A Message from Bengt Jörgen, Artistic Director & CEO I am pleased to welcome you to this performance of Anastasia. Created in commemoration of Canada’s Ballet Jörgen 20th Anniversary and received with acclaim across North America, CBJ is delighted to bring back this original production, restaged for our 30th Anniversary season. The idea for Anastasia grew out of a personal interest in Russian history — Anastasia Nikolaevna was a real historical figure, the rambunctious, free spirited youngest daughter of the last Russian Tsar and a young woman full of personality. The story of her life has become a remarkable myth transcending facts, reason, and any attempts to bottle her up in the footnotes of history and continues to fascinate people close to 100 years after her disappearance in July 1918. The real human drama of a young girl cast adrift in one of the cataclysmic events of the 20th century is a story I found impossible to resist. I am indebted to The Michael Young Family Foundation for their extraordinary financial support of this production. Additional funding for Anastasia was generously provided by the Canada Council for the Arts, and numerous foundations, corporations and individuals from across the country. The original score for Anastasia was made possible with the support of The John D. McKellar Charitable Foundation. This performance is made possible with the support of The Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council’s Touring Programs and our National Presenting Partner, BMO Financial Group. Thank you for coming and I hope you enjoy the show.
