A Victoria Ballet Company Production

Victoria International Ballet Academy and Victoria Ballet Company present “The Ugly Duckling” ballet! Transcending the pages of Hans Christian Andersen’s timeless tale, this ballet unfolds the poignant narrative of a little duckling navigating a world that initially rejects her due to her unconventional appearance.

Set against a backdrop of exquisite choreography, mesmerizing music, and talented dancers, our ballet event promises to transport audiences into the heart of the barnyard where the Ugly Duckling’s story unfolds. Witness the emotional rollercoaster as the little duckling, resilient in the face of adversity, triumphs over rejection and loneliness.

The Ugly Duckling’s transformative journey is a celebration of personal growth and self-discovery, beautifully expressed through the fluidity and grace of ballet. As the duckling matures into a stunning swan, the performance becomes a powerful metaphor for the triumph of inner beauty and the indomitable spirit within each of us.

Join us as we bring this classic tale to life on stage, inviting audiences of all ages to rediscover the timeless lessons of beauty, acceptance, and the triumph of the human spirit.
