From the Classics to Grotesque

The foreign tours of the Leonid Yacobson Ballet Theatre never fail to demonstrate our playbill's diversity.

The memorable performance given by our dancers on February 15 and 17 in the French cities of Yerres and Longjumeau has been yet another affirmation of that. The Theatre of Yerres and Theatre of Longjumeau venues hosted a special programme that juxtaposes such staples of classical ballet as Chopiniana and Grand pas from Paquita with a modern, deliberately grotesque dance experiment, The Rehearsal.
