Moscow Festival Ballet at Parker Playhouse

Sun 25 Feb, 2018

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.
