Moscow Festival Ballet, led by Artistic Director Sergei Radchenko, brings to life two of the most enduring and romantic programs in the canon of dance.
Les Sylphides (Chopiniana)
Choreography by: Mikhail Fokine
Music by: Frederic Chopin
This short, one act, non-narrative ballet is often described as a “romantic reverie” and some say the first ballet to be simply about mood and dance It is composed of a suite of dances in the romantic atmosphere of a moonlit park with the sylphides, spirits in the air, dancing with the “poet” in search of the ideal.
Romeo and Juliet
Choreography by: Elena Radchenko based on sketches by Marius Pepita
Music by: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
First love, age-old hate: with its primal passions and timeless themes, Romeo and Juliet has inspired ballet’s greatest choreographers. This traditional production to Tchaikovsky’s heart-rending music has drama at its core. Its swordplay, bawdy humor, romance and tragedy unfold against the backdrop of Renaissance Italy.
