Anastasia Costumes Up Close

Kenneth MacMillan created the one-act ballet Anastasia for Deutsche Oper Ballet in 1967, and created another two acts to make it into a full length ballet in 1971.  It showcased MacMillan’s influences: of classical Royal Ballet tradition in the first two acts, and of German expressionism in the last. The ballet remains one of MacMillan’s most experimental and poignant works. The costumes are crucial and reflect this in their detail and their truth to the era. I think they work incredibly well and the detail in every costume is very special. As soon as I put my costume on for Olga, I'm instantly ready for my role as a Romanov sister.
