Artistic Director and CEO Bengt Jörgen has re-visioned the dramatic Swan Lake, adding a hint of Canadian Heritage. Set in the picturesque seascape of the Fortress of Louisbourg, Nova Scotia, Jörgen engages in a dialogue with a modern audience and reflects on Canadian identity through this classic work.
The Sleeping Beauty, perhaps one of the most beloved ballets of all, usually takes three to four hours to perform. Younger audiences can easily become bored, even at the most gorgeous and enthralling performance. Enter Canada’s Ballet Jörgen, with a shorter, reimagined version of this classic.
