The Mikhailovsky Ballet, which recently finished a triumphant London season, is proud to announce that their critically acclaimed production of Giselle will be presented in Venice , at La Fenice theatre.

The short Italian season of the Mikhailovsky will start on the 5th of November, the last performance is scheduled for November, the 9th.

The Mikhailovsky production of this classical romantic ballet, staged by one of the most prominent Albrechts in the world, Nikita Dolgushin, is widely praised for a true sense of style, elegance and rich emotion. Some of the traditionally reserved British press hailed this work by the company as one of the most exciting renditions of Giselle done in decades.

Nikita Dolgushin revived original sets from the 19th century with the help of one of the leading Russian stage designers Vyacheslav Okunev. The traditional choreography of Coralli, Perrot and Petipa was gently revised by Mr Dolgushin as well.

Principals of the Mikhailovsky Irina Perren, Anastasya Matvienko, Denis Matvienko and Semen Chudin, who appears with leading ballet companies worldwide and has recently started his collaboration with the famous St Petersburg company, will take up the major roles in the performances in Italy .

Last year the Mikhailovsky Ballet triumphantly debuted on the famous stage of La Fenice Theatre in Venice. Their stylish rendition of Giselle, hailed by the international press as one of the most gentle and stylish productions of this classical ballet, was presented to the Italian public with critical acclaim.
In response to a great demand for the Mikhailovsky to come back, they are delighted to announce that on February 12th and 13th the company will perform a specially selected Gala programme at Teatro Malibran in Venice.
The masterpiece of American art of dance, The Moor's Pavane, will be followed by true gems of Russian ballet. Artistic director of the Mikhailovsky Farukh Ruzimatov will appear on stage as Moor and perform famous Adagietto to Mahler music. Among other artists to participate in the concerts are world-famous Irina Perren, Anastasia Matvienko, Semyon Chudin and Marat Shemiunov.

Thanks for the update, Gavin. Having seen Farukh Ruzimatov in modern dance works in Tallinn and London, I know the Venice fans are in for a treat.
