Despite her young age, the prominent theatre set designer Anastasia Nefyodova has long since earned the level of renown on par with a mature master. Her talent allows her to achieve flawless creative harmony with the director’s idea, while also enhancing it with her own concepts. The set and costumes that Anastasia will contribute to Cheeky Chastushki, a ballet set to Rodion Shchedrin's music and choreographed by Vyacheslav Samodurov, will be her first cooperation with the Leonid Yacobson Ballet Theatre.


Leonid Yacobson Academic Ballet Theatre is delighted to invite its guests to a vibrant, life-affirming weekend with Don Quixote, a production by Johan Kobborg.


From 5 to 17 July, the historical venue of the legendary Alexandrinsky Theatre will be hosting a new project by the Leonid Yacobson Ballet Theatre, titled Golden Collection. No Intermissions. Come to the luxurious imperial chambers to marvel at masterfully enacted scenes from ballet classics like Jean-Guillaume Bart’s version of The Sleeping Beauty, The Swan Lake choreographed by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, and Johan Kobborg’s unique interpretation of Don Quixote.


We welcomed another début during the Nizhny Novgorod Youth Theatre show on 20 May, part of the prestigious Golden Mask festival.  Irina Chadova played a Flower Girl for the first time in Don Quixote, Leonid Yacobson Ballet Theatre’s symbolic show that has long been much beloved by the public. We are delighted by her successful performance, and wish her even more grand new roles!


During the Giselle show by Leonid Yacobson Ballet at the main Mariinsky venue on 30 April, Denis Klimuk made his first-ever appearance as Hans the gamekeeper. We would like to congratulate our talented performer and wish him even more new and interesting roles!


In May, the Leonid Yacobson Ballet Theatre will go back to showing its best classical productions at the legendary Mariinsky.

Our theatre will have a show at the main Mariinsky venue at 12.00 on 7 May and 11.30 on 28 May, playing The Swan Lake, Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s most famous work, choreographed by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov.


During the Grand All-Russian Tour, the Leonid Yacobson Academic Ballet Theatre, headed by Honoured Artist of Russia Andrian Fadeev, will perform in the city of Vladikavkaz on 22 and 23 April. We will bring the Don Quixote ballet to the National State Opera and Ballet Theatre of the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania. Johan Kobborg’s production has been the main highlight of theatre playbills since the day it premièred, earning an excellent reputation among the public both in Russia and abroad.


The Dance Open Star Gala, the main event of the eponymous festival's 21st season, will take place on the Historical Stage of the Alexandrinsky Theatre on 15 April, supported by the St. Petersburg Committee for Culture.


The Alexandrinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg is getting ready to host a new ballet project titled April Season: Yacobson Theatre's Gold Collection. The series of performances will start with Pyotr Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake, revived in 2015 with choreography by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov and set design by Vyacheslav Okunev.
