Anne–The Ballet

Canada’s Ballet Jörgen performs in Summerside—Apr 27

Following popular past spring visits to Harbourfront Theatre with Cinderella, Coppelia and Romeo and Juliet, Canada’s Ballet Jörgen returns to Summerside this month with their production, Anne of Green Gables–The Ballet®. The performance will take place on April 27 at 7:30 pm.

Anne of Green Gables–The Ballet® is a playful, colourful and evocative production that will transport audiences to early 20th century Atlantic Canada. With choreography by Bengt Jörgen and based on the beloved Canadian novel by Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables – The Ballet® follows the adventures of Anne Shirley, an orphan girl sent to live on a farm in the fictional town of Avonlea, PEI. The ballet is danced to music from Anne of Green Gables-The Musical ™, composed by Norman Campbell.

The professional company will also be joined on-stage by youth members of local PEI dance schools.

Canada’s Ballet Jörgen was founded in 1987 to support the development and dissemination of Canadian choreography and to bring dance to underserved communities. Since its inception, the company has exclusively danced works created for the company by Canadian and Canada based choreographers and has effectively reached households with low incomes.
