What's On

On 13 March, the Imperial venue of the Alexandrinsky Theatre will host a show by the Leonid Yacobson Ballet troupe: Marius Petipa's classical masterpiece, The Sleeping Beauty (with music by Pyotr Tchaikovsky). The production has been staged by the distinguished French choreographer Jean-Guillaume Bart.

It is no accident that Swan Lake is a show that ballet aficionados are the most eager to see. All renowned theatres around the world welcome it with open doors. Anyone living in or visiting St. Petersburg can enjoy this cult classic, set against a colourful backdrop courtesy of People’s Artist Vyacheslav Okunev, at the Mariinsky Theatre on 18 March.

Cheeky Chastushki, a Yacobson Ballet show set to Rodion Shchedrin’s eponymous song suite and choreographed by Vyacheslav Samodurov, premièred on 16 December. The event took place at the historical venue of the Mariinsky Theatre, and was part of Rodion Shchedrin’s birthday celebrations.
