Anne Frank Based on the book Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl, this unique, thought-provoking ballet utilizes an actual historical event captured in biographical prose as the basis to promote a much deeper understanding of the use of ballet to not only tell a story artistically, but also creatively convey context and circumstance. Utilizing contemporary choreography, drama, an original musical score and period costuming and props, this ballet offers older students and adults an opportunity to experience the events of this historic period as written by Anne in her diary. This ballet is 45 minutes long and features a question/answer session with the performers for the audience following the performance.
Since its founding in 1986, Nashville Ballet has grown to become the largest professional ballet company in Tennessee, presenting a varied repertoire of classical ballet and contemporary works by noted choreographers, including original works by Artistic Director & CEO Paul Vasterling.
