Description

The Russian Ballet Icons Galas have been organised by Ensemble Productions annually for the last nine years and next year will celebrate its 10th anniversary. Every gala is a multimedia experience which combines performances by living masters who are celebrating the life and art of the greatest  historical performers of the Russian ballet stage and the importance of the Russian ballet school generally. ‘Flight performed by the soul’ is how Alexander Pushkin described Russian ballet, whilst speaking of contemporary ballerina Evdokia Istomina in Eugene Onegin. It was the Russian ballet that was destined to revive the art worldwide by giving the world mesmerising dancers such as Anna Pavlova, Mikhail Fokin, Leonid Myasin, Bronislawa Nijinskaya, Vazlav Nijinsky, George Balanchine and Serge Lifar. The sensational Ballets Russes of Sergey Diaghilev remain until today one of the most significant achievements in the ballet history.
The Russian Ballet Icons Gala 2015  under  the artistic direction of David Makhateli will again feature significantexcerpts  from the Russian
 classical repertoire and masterpieces by contemporary choreographers  influenced by the Russian ballet. The programme will be performed by the leading star dancers of the Bolshoi, Mariinsky, Royal Ballet, English National Ballet, ballets of the Grand Opera Paris, Berlin Staatsoper, New York City Ballet and the Ballet of Monte Carlo.
