Touring a dazzling programme of full scale ballet classics - Swan Lake, Romeo & Juliet, The Nutcracker and Giselle - audiences can not only marvel at the perfection of its corps de ballet but witness the excellent technique and grace of principal dancers Alevtina Lapshina and Liliya Oryekhova.
Founded by Victor Smirnov-Golovanov in 1988, Moscow City Ballet is one of Russia’s most successful and popular touring ballet companies, highly admired for its distinctive style, exciting choreography and exceptionally gifted dancers.“The dancers are elegant, superbly rehearsed and very savvy...The principals finished with a dazzling flourish and justifiably brought the house down.”
Sunday Express “The dawn parting duet is riveting and Romeo's dance of grief with the 'dead' body of Juliet has some searing moments. And, yes, a stunning, one-handed spinning lift by Zolotarev”
Moscow City Ballet will be accompanied on tour by the Moscow City Ballet Orchestra who will provide a dramatic soundtrack to this magical season of dance.
The tour opens with Swan Lake at the Theatre Royal, Bath on Wednesday 16 November and will continue throughout the UK including Chichester, Bromley, Brighton, Eastbourne and Manchester; please check http://www.pmbpresentations.com
