Anne of Green Gables The Ballet

October 19 @ 8:00 pm

Based on Anne of Green Gables the Musical
Music composed by Norman Campbell
Ballet Score arranged by Alexander Lekovich

Canada’s Ballet Jorgen presents Anne of Green Gables The Ballet, a uniquely Canadian story told through a full symphonic ballet score for the first time in history. Created as an extended orchestration of Anne of Green Gables, The Musical, this production is made possible through the assistance of the heirs of Lucy Maud Montgomery. The ballet tells the story of Anne Shirley, an 11-year-old orphan girl who is mistakenly sent to Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, a middle-aged brother and sister who had intended to adopt a boy, to help them on their farm. Set in the fictional town of Avonlea on Prince Edward Island, Marilla insists Anne must be returned to the orphanage, but once Matthew takes a strong liking to the girl, she decides to let her stay. A memorable character for generations of readers, Anne is highly imaginative, talkative, eager to please and, at times, quite dramatic. She is also very defensive of her appearance, despising her red hair and pale, thin frame. Anne takes much joy in life and adapts quickly, thriving in the close-knit farming village. Her imagination and big personality soon brighten up Green Gables and this monumental ballet.
