Ballet Magnificat is the world’s premiere professional Christian Ballet Company, and Ballet Magnificat’s The Scarlet Cord is a timely piece for today’s audience.
The Scarlet Cord depicts an incredible drama of two missionaries not willing to compromise their faith in Jesus Christ. They live and minister in the midst of one of the cruelest regimes the world has ever known, the communist Soviet Union. The main character, Rahab, learns a hard lesson when she is abandoned by her beloved Soviet regime. The two missionaries share the hope of Jesus to this dejected woman and a moving story of a revolution unfolds – a human heart turning to the ultimate truth, Jesus Christ.
This production shows the Lord’s amazing plan of redemption working in the midst of unlikely places, woven through life like a scarlet cord.
Ballet Magnificat!, an arts organization dedicated to presenting the good news of Jesus Christ to the whole world and headquartered in Jackson, MS, was founded in 1986. Magnificat is Latin for “to magnify Him.” It is derived from “Mary’s Song” of praise in the 1st Chapter of the Gospel of Luke when she first learned she was to be the mother of the Messiah. Our two professional touring companies (Alpha and Omega) have performed nationally and internationally, ministering to audiences in the United States as well as over 35 countries around the world.
Ballet Magnificat!’s heart’s desire is to be in that place where we can be of the most service to further His Kingdom. We are grateful to be a part of the body of Christ, and we pray that God will use our ministry to be a blessing to you.
