Feel the exuberant hope and joy that Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Anne has brought to generations of readers… but feel it in a whole new way. This playful, fully-staged storybook ballet transports audiences to early 20th century Atlantic Canada and vividly brings this beloved novel to life. Follow the adventures of the imaginative, sometimes mischievous, Anne Shirley as she discovers her place in the world. With dazzling choreography, accurate period sets and lively storytelling, this performance is perfect for the whole family. As one audience member describes it, “If Montgomery’s words could dance off the pages, this is exactly how they would look.” Original choreography by Bengt Jörgen, C.M. Composed by Norman Campbell. Ballet score arranged by Alexander Levkovich.
