The dancers from the Leonid Yacobson Ballet Company are to take part in the Dance Open Gala, which will crown the 16th season of the International Ballet Festival as the grand finale.
The Dance Open All-Stars Gala offers an overview of the pinnacles of world choreography, with only the brightest paragons of ballet being invited to perform. The programme of the concert, which will take place on April 24 at the Alexandrinsky Theatre, is set to feature principals from major ballet companies, who will showcase their most memorable performances. The Gala contributors are all selected based on key criteria: they represent the best that contemporary ballet has to offer; they display the most outstanding creations of today and the news-makers of tomorrow. The Leonid Yacobson Ballet Theatre will present the pas de deux from the Venetian Carnival ballet, performed by two soloists, Evgenia Obraztsova and Vyacheslav Lopatin, along with a number of young dancers: Sofia Matyushevskaya, Anna Skvortsova, Yana Chernoritskaya, Galina Yanovskaya, Hasan Allakhverdiev, Aydar Bekbulatov, Marseille Kazykhanov, and Konstantin Shukhov.
Have an outstanding performance!
